Comments: This is the species most commonly confused with C. julii. This species differs from the Julii cory in having stripes, as opposed to spots. If you unsure of the species you have, look at the fish's side. If the spots on it are joined to form a long stripe, it is the three-lined cory. If they are separate and the fish has no stripes anywhere on its body, it is the Julii cory.
