The very nice Corydoras eversi lives in the Araguaia drainage (Brazil) and became known as C 65. It was only scientifically described in 2016. The scientific treatment of C. eversi is based on a collection by Hans-Georg Evers in 1998, who was also able to bring living animals with him. As mentioned, they were initially assigned the number C65.
The species is present in aquaristics since its first import by conservation breeding – a nice example that conservation breeding is also possible by hobby aquaristics. Also our fish, which we can offer just now, are offsprings. C. eversi is very similar to C. araguiaensis from the same distribution area and differs – apart from color details, especially the golden yellow shimmer – by a structure in the cranial skeleton.
For our customers: the animals have code 229575 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesale.
