Saw these adorable little guys at the LFS.  Its a good store but they did not know what kind they were surprisingly.  Ive never seen any that look like these and they were only 5 bucks each.  Anyone know what they could be?  Closest thing I could think of is a young peppered maybe.  They are only a little over an inch long.

That looks to me like a Peppered Cory.

yup, that's a darker colored peppered cory. I have some that are lighter shades and some that are dark.

deleted a comment...just noticed you aren't in US...Smiley

that's some big gravel in there, be sure to shove your gravel vacuum tube deep when you clean.

If you were referring to me, I am in the US.
I love the dark shade of my guys.  I saw an older one there that almost had a deep purple color.  I cant wait for the coloration of mine to come in.  Im going to buy some friends for them in a few weeks.

I wanted to edit my post but the 5 minutes is up  Angry.  Anyways do any of you know what cory eggs look like.  I just noticed that there is white stuff on the glass of my aquarium and it wasnt there last night.  Its placed in a few different places and no where else.  Its small round white orbs but they seem too small to be eggs.  Could it be left overs from where eggs were planted and later eaten?

It could be, or it could be cory eggs. Impossible to say without a very detailed picture. They do place their eggs on tank walls as well as other places in the tank. They usually stick them in various places. 

I was going to say that an lfs that can't identify the most commonly available cory species in the US is pretty pathetic, they're also way too expensive. 

His color won't fill in to a solid shade, it will stay mottled. That's why they're called peppered. Smiley

I tried so hard to get a pic but my camera only has auto focus.  I was going to scrub the walls today but I guess I will put it off until I can confirm what it is.  And of course Ill post updates later.


And I didnt mean he would become a solid color.  The one there kind of had a purplish tint to him.  In retrospect im really surprised that they didnt know it was a peppered.  I was all excited thinking I was getting some rare fish.  Oh well I still love them.
Thanks

I definitely see the resemblance but at this point at least mine are more spotted and are much shorter and chubbier.  They eat like pigs lol.
