Greetings, I was hoping someone might be able to help me out. I have 2 Bronze corys in my tank and was looking for tankmates for them to school with. All I can find are 'green' corys. I have read that they are the same from my searches on google, but no one at the pet store can confirm this. I have (hopefully) attached the picture of my bronze(the single fish) and the greens(the three grouped together). Are the 2 the same species? Will they school together? Thanks!

The only way to know for sure is by scientific name....

"Corydoras Aeneus"

Do the pet store even know the scientific name?

If not I would seriously consider going elsewhere to buy my fish.....Thats not a good sign....

To be honest the ones in the picture could be any number of species......

They do look like the Green Cory Aeneus though!

If it was me I would source some more Bronze Corries (Online if you cant get any near where you live)

I love to hate Water Changes! :P
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Here is two sources you may be able to compare your fish:

The "green" corydoras may be brochis, which used to be brochis splendens, but are now called corydoras splendens, at least by some:
