Corydoras sp.

12. May 2015

Another extremely rarely imported Corydoras species reached us from Peru. The unusual popular name of the scientifically undescribed species is due to the coloration, especially the dark triangle in the neck. This reminds one very much to the odd type of headdress worn by Gustaf Gründgens in his legendary production of Goethe´s Faust, where he played the Mephisto.

Among Cory enthusiasts the species has the code CW7. Our fish come from the basin of the Rio Jurua. It is a very lively species that didn´t want to sit still even in the photo-tank.
