We received again this pretty and very variably colored Cory from Peru. It remains still an open question whether “San Juan” belongs to Corydoras napoensis, C. bilineatus or an undescribed species. The Corydoras-elegans-group, to which “San Juan” belongs without any doubt, is in need of revision.
May this be as it is: “San Juan” is a very pretty, peaceful and active (note the large caudal fin!) species of Corydoras.
For our customers: the animals have code 244302 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
