Corydoras sarareensis ( = C23)

4. December 2023

It has been almost 20 years since we were able to offer this beautiful armored catfish from Brazil. Corydoras sarareensis, which was given its species name after the Rio Sarare from which it originates, was only scientifically described in 1995. Prior to this, the species was known as “C23” in the hobby.

The Rio Sarare is a tributary on the right bank of the Rio Guapore. Ornamental fish collectors rarely stray into this river. Although C. sarareensis has already been successfully bred in the aquarium, offspring are rarely sold in the trade. We are therefore very pleased to be able to offer these beauties once again.

For our customers: the animals have code 244353 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
