Corydoras cf. kanei C142

2. April 2013

C142 is a very beautiful, peaceful and comparatively small species of Corydoras: it becomes around 5 cm long. It is said that C142 originates from the Rio Tapajos. Corydoras kanei is quite similar to C142, but the latter is distinguished from the former by the bright golden spots on the neck and the operculum. Such colour marks are typical for schooling fish, because the can be seen very good under water and make it easy to stay in contact with conspecifics.

For our customers: the fish have code 232783 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Corydoras: from ancient greek, means „with helmet and spear“. This refers to the strong armor and fin spines. kanei: dedication name for Kane Grant, the son of the first describer.

Suggestion of a common name: Golden neck cory
