Is this a baby false Julli Cory

I had a pleasant surprise this morning and saw this swimming about in my tank. I think it's a baby julli cory but not sure can someone please help to confirm this.

I would also like to know the chances of survival and roughly how old it might be.

It is definitely a baby cory. They have black stripes across the body when they first hatch. Pygmy cory adults have stripes from nose to tail and when they are several days old pygmy cory fry suddenly overnight change from side to side stripes to nose to tail stripes. Presumably julii cories will change their pattern as well.

Thanks everyone i just hope he survives.  I am hoping he is a bit big for the fishes mouths and stays hidden for a while. I would love to know his age tho as i have looked on youtube and he don't seem that young as it has colour and most i have seen are quite pale.

Do you have true julii, because nearly all 'julii' are trilineatus. If you bought real julii they would have been very expensive.

After doing a little research it looks like they are false julli cory. I am new to this so I just go by what they say on the tanks but I am learning thanks to Sue and everybody on here.

Thank you for pointing this out to me It's something else I now know  :)

It is very common for shops to false jullis (trilneatus) as real juliis. Yet another reason to check everyhint they say  ;)
