I'm not sure I agree with labeling these fish rare. In Florida i find them frequently at larger fish stores, however I'll agree you wont find them at walmart and petsmart. Perhaps uncommon is a better label? What do you from the rest of the world think? --Brian 14:53, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

The trouble is so many shops label Corydoras trilineatus as Corydoras Julii which is why they're so rare. I see "C. julii" all the time in Scottish shops but they're really C. trilineatus. Does the shops take heed when I point out they're wrong? Nope.

So in the UK they are quite rare.

if you look on planetcatfish theres like 1 or 2 pictures of a true julii, and several dozen of trilineatus. basically from what i've seen trilineatus get labelled as julii most of the time (maybe because it's a shorter name and easier to fit on the label? hehe) they do look VERY similar, and you really have to look closely to tell the difference. --Cat 15:27, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

Alright sounds good then rare classification is better, should also add a distinguish tag to the page.--Brian 16:25, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
