    If you have comets in the tank, keep a close eye on water quality, goldfish are poop machines. Also corys prefer a group my suggestion at least 6

    I'm going to vote it's a cory. paleatus but it "could be" a "bronze" I suppose. Get 4-5 or more at least if you have tank space to make it cory-happy, you'll love the action! What, size is your tank?

    It's a Corydoras paleatus also called the salt and pepper cory. It's a peaceful community fish and likes to be kept in small groups. They are bottom feeders but not algae eaters. Be sure to provide them tablet foods or flakes that sink to the bottom.

    Narwhale is correct, it is not a pleco.
