Corydoras amandajanea

3. June 2013

This beautiful species of Corydoras is only occasionally available. It has a comparably pointed snout and becomes around 6 cm long. In its natural habitat this species lives in dark water. So it has only very few markings on the light colored body: the dark eyeband and a rectangular blotch right below the dorsal fin. Moreover a bright shining marking in the neck helps to find and recognize conspecifics. Besides this the body can be fine spotted or plain, this differs individually. When the light falls sideways in the tank, the flanks can show a very nice, bright green shine.

For our customers: the animals have code 221604 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only.

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