    I bought him about 7 months ago. When I got home I noticed he had an indent between his Dorsal fin and eye. Other than that he's always looked perfectly healthy.

    Has anyone else experienced the same with a Corydoras? [​IMG]

    Could it be this C.trilineatus dugs deep in the substrate to get to food parts?

    Excuse my ignorance, but how would that have caused the indent?

    I'm not sure (never seen this in Corys) but I think to see some redness lower at the head as well (behing the eye / gill) so that was what made me think it is digging quite deep in the substrate.

    I'll definitely check on that tonight as that's a old photo. But I think it might just be in the photo though as I check on them every day during feeding.

    I bought him with the indent, but maybe he was doing what you said at the pet shop.

    Could it not just be a birth defect or something. If you bought him like that and nothing else is wrong then it is possible, no?

    Actually gives the little guy a bit of beauty in his difference. Love these little Corys. Amazing fish!
