    March 2003: Some weeks ago we received a few pieces of Corydoras baianinha. This extreme rare Corydoras only occurs in a little number of small streams in the south of Brasil. The population of Cordoras baianinha is very much in danger, because its living space was already largely distroyed by environmental pollution and forest clearing! […]

    Corydoras sychri

    6. July 2007

    This true mailed catfish comes from Peru, Rio Nanay and Rio Amazonas near to Iquitos. Lately these corys are imported in several variations of pattern colouration. This variability makes it difficult to determine this species. They are very similar to C. atropersonatus. C. sychri is a typical representative of the long nosed Corydoras group. This […]

    This new and undescribed true mailed catfish differs from C. kanei by a golden band on the shoulder. The very attractive fish originate from the Rio Jamaxin (Brazil). Their final length is 5 cm. C. kanei has been bred successfully on several occasions and Seuß (Die faszinierende Welt der Corydoras, Landbuch Verlag Germany, 1997) reports […]

    Corydoras weitzmani

    6. July 2007

    This is one of the most spectacular representative of the Corydoras genus recently imported. For us this is the ultimate Corydoras. Its closest relative is probably Corydoras panda. The body pattern is similar to the recently described Corydoras tukano. This species was caught by the authors in September 2004 in the riverine system of the […]

  • Corydoras ephippifer

    6. July 2007

    This true mailed catfish species was imported from Belem (Brazil). The latin name „ephippifer“ is a combination from „ephippium“ (lat. = saddle) und „ferre“ (lat. = bearing) referring to the black spot on the basis of the dorsal fin. The animals reach a maximal length of 6 cm. They should be kept in a group. […]

  • Corydoras weitzmani

    February 2006: We are pleased to be able to offer you the first offspring of a legend. Now offspring of the recently again discovered and in the last year for the first time to Germany imported Corydoras weitzmani are available. Fortunately this beautiful small, at Corydoras panda reminding species, could quite fast be spawned by […]

    A very beautiful colour morph bred in Germany and a true addition to our fascinating hobby. Corydoras aeneus (this fish probably belong to this family) is one of the most common true mailed catfish in the aquaristical hobby. Originally this cory species has a large distribution in nature which ranges from Trinidad, Venezuela, Surinam, Colombia, […]

  • Corydoras sp. C 30

    6. July 2007

    Corydoras C 30, a scientifically still not described species, originates from the area of the Amazon delta (Federal State Amapa) in Brazil. In its appearance it reminds of Corydoras melanistius a further north in Surinam and Guyana occurring species. Like all Corys C 30 should be held not in a to small group (5 – […]

  • Corydoras sp. C 71

    6. July 2007

    August 2006: With Corydoras spec. C 71 we could import a further rare species from Brazil. They originate from the Rio Arua in the Federal State Para. With a final size of 6 cm they belong to the medium sized Corys. The requirements for their maintenance might be the same as for other Corydoras species. […]
