Corydoras sp. Eder

20. January 2014

We obtained from the Madre de Dios region in Peru this extremely rare and beautiful long snouted Corydoras und the name of Corydoras sp. Eder I and II. From a zoological point of view both represent the same species, which is very variable in respect of coloration. In the hobby there are several synonyms for these fish, eg C115, C116, Corydoras sp.Manu 1, 4, 7, and 8.

Corydoras sp. Eder I

With a large, dark shoulder spot. Other names: C116 or Manu 4, Manu 7, Manu 8

Corydoras sp. Eder II

Without the shoulder spot. Other names: C115 or Manu 1

These differences are, however, rather vague and the fish can also change the coloration to a certain degree.

For our customers: the fish have code 223855 and 223865 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in very limited numbers only!
