Corydoras fowleri / coriatae

17. March 2017

The very long snouted Corydoras fowleri has been described scientifically in 1950 on the basis of a single specimen. Since that it has not been seen for decades anymore. Only at the end of the 1990ies imports from Peru arrived. The imported fish proofed to be very variable in respect of coloration. It is still a matter of debate wether C. coriatae represents only one of these sports or wether the species is a valid species on its own. But who cares? In any case they are very impressing, beautiful aquarium fish!

For our customers: the fish have code 229814 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
