The habitats of Corydoras gracilis in the entry of the Rio Madeira are clearly off the beaten track of ornamental fish collectors; furthermore, the nimble little animals, which know how to hide themselves perfectly in the maze of branches that have fallen into the water, are difficult to catch one by one. That is why Corydoras gracilis is one of the rarest species of Corydoras in the trade and when it appears, it is correspondingly expensive. We are therefore very pleased to be able to offer a good quantity of this rarity as a wild catch at the moment.
The 3-4 cm long Corydoras gracilis is one of the species that is much more in the open water than on the ground. If the very lively little animals rest on the ground, they stretch their bodies, put on their fins and are perfectly camouflaged as sticks.
For our customers: the animals have code 230274 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesalers.
