Corydoras gossei

10. September 2010

Currently we have beautiful German bred specimens of Corydoras gossei in stock. This is a very lively species of Corydoras. It originates from the Rio Mamoré in Brazil. Wild collected specimens are hardly ever available. Corydoras gossei is a close relative of C. sterbai. However, due to the dark basic coloration in C. gossei the bright orange spines of the pectoral fins look even better than in C. sterbai. Maximum size in both species is around 6 cm.

For our customers: the animals have code 230243 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. gossei: dedication name for the ichthyologist Jean-Pierre Gosse. sterbai: dedication name for the zoologist Günther Sterba.

Common names: Palespotted Corydoras, Orange finned Corydoras, Gosse ´s Corydoras
