Show Corydoras arrived!

10. September 2013

We received two very rare species of Corydoras from Brazil, which represent moreover two of the largest species of Corydoras at all: the “real” Corydoras narcissus (I), which can attain a maximum length of almost 10 cm, and Corydoras robustus, which can become even one centimeter longer.

For the differences beween C. narcissus I and II (the latter, by the way, is also currently in our stock, originating from Peru), see

It is worth mentioning that in Corydoras robustus both sexes develop the elongated dorsal fin. The sexes can be told best apart by the shape of the ventral fins.

For our customers: Corydoras narcissus has code 237105, C. robustus 244106 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Both species are available in limited numbers only!
