I'm really really pleased with myself, despite having no camera skills and having a really old tatty awful camera I managed to take these pics;

Looks really lush and green :)

Happy inhabitants and plants all around!

Are the stripey Cories "Sterbay" (spelling?) They are starting to grow on me. Cories used to freak me out a bit when I saw them in shops, but I'm comming around to the idea of getting some at some point :)

They are not sterbai. They are trillineatus. People always seemed to get trillineatus, sterbai and julii wrong. I have yet to see a single LFS that sell actual julii. They always label sterbai as julii

Great pictures and a lovely tank you have their. I love the contrast between the pale sand and the black background, I think it enhances the green on the plants.

I know what you mean, although really fish stores should be able to tell C. sterbai and C. trillineatus apart, however I can understand the confusion between C. trillineatus and C. julii, both are very similar.

Thanks everyone :D

Moss man the background is actually a dark blue water ripple;

On the subject of cory ID sterbai appear to have a dark body with white markings wheras the trilis have a white body with dark markings, they do look similar,visually when comparing the 2 it's very easy.

The difference between juli & trili corys is alot more complicated and the only real way to tell a juli from a trili is to know the exact area the fish was caught. As a general rule julis have small spots and trilis have reticulated lines although you do occasionally get trilis with spots.It's safe to say that 99% of all supposed 'juli' corys are actually mislabelled trilis, if it were truly a juli and the shop / breeder etc could proove it then they could demand a much higher price for them.

Thanks :D

I always get good pics from this tank, the inhabitants are very photogenic, wish all my fish were like that, esp. my gold corys, they are so beautiful but very shy.
