We received beautiful Corydoras sp. C91 from Peru (Rio Huallaga). The splendid species belongs to the closer relationship of Corydoras julii, C. punctatus, and C. trilineatus. The species was called Corydoras sp. “Heiko” or C. sp. “Peru-Bondi” in the trade before it was given a C-number.
The peaceful schooling species gets the most brillant colours when kept in soft and slightly acidic water, but is completely undemanding and can be also kept under other water conditions. Temperature should be between 22°C and 26°C.
For our customers: The species has code 229593 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
