Finally we received again this gorgeous, rare species of Corydoras from the Rio Purus in Brazil. The fish become almost double size compared with the “common” Corydoras arcuatus. In any other respect both species can be handled the same: they are hardy and beautiful fish!
For our customers: the animals have code 221855 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. arcuatus: means “arched”, referring to the stripe over the back.
