We have the beautiful Corydoras sp. C141 – this species is obviously not described scientifically yet – in stock on a regular basis. The exact place of origin is still unknown, we obtain the fish under the wrong name of „Corydoras ornatus“ from Brazil. However, Corydoras ornatus is a different species.
Currently we have some tanks of C141 in show size (6-7 cm) in stock. In one of them the animals came in breeding condition. Wow! the usually creme-coloured dorsal spine got an orange tinge and the membrane behind the dorsal spine extended to a pennant in both sexes.
The basic pattern is extremely variable in that species. Most specimens have three parallel horizontal stripes on the flanks, but the number of stripes can differ between two and six, quite often the stripes are dissolved in spots. All these varieties occur together.
For our customers: the fish have code 241725 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
