The “New Panda” from Colombia/Venezuela is a much sought for species by Corydoras enthusiats since the first importation in 2010 (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/archiv.php?news_id=272). There have been given two CW numbers for the species (different species?), namely CW49 and CW51. Please see for discussion and additional pictures of both forms http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/corydoras-sp-cw-49-and-cw-51_en_1694.html Now we were able to import again this beautiful species and this time – again – many of them look different: they have an enormous large black saddle spot compared with the varieties known already. So are these Corys another local variety or do these fish simply differ a bit in respect of coloration from year to year? Nobody knows… But one thing is for sure: the are real beauties! For our customers: the fish have code 240183 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
