5 Corydoras species

Here are five species from the Rio Guapore/Mamore system in southwestern Brazil that are a bit different. Many are familiar with Corydoras sterbai, but the others are less often seen. I have, or have had, all of these species in average temperature tanks and they are all good corys. The Corydoras gossei and Corydoras seussi are quite a nice contrast, being a dull black with orange fins. All are in our profiles. The trait of orange fins on several species from this system is an interesting topic in itself.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
