Corydoras sp. aff. reynoldsi CW12

20. April 2010

Repeatedly we were able to import the longnosed Corydoras from Colombia that resembles the shortnosed C. reynoldsi. For the latter please check–corydoras-tukano_en_1074.html. The longnosed species represents a species undescribed by science so far.

Like all longnosed Corydoras this fish is somewhat variable regarding coloration. In contrast to the shortnosed species, longnosed Corydoras live more or less solitary. That is the reason why they are collected only in small numbers what makes them comparably expensive. The largest specimens seen by us were about 6 cm long.

For our customers: the fish have code 243654 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Corydoras: from ancient greek, means „with helmet and spear“. This refers to the strong armor and fin spines. reynoldsi: dedication name.
