Cochui Cory - where?

Hi,

I'd love to have 6 of these little guys but can't find them in any LFS. When I ask if they can order them, they say they've never heard of them but take my name and number if any come in.

Ghreed, were you able to breed yours?

Fauna: 18 Cardinals, 8 Pygmy Corys, 6 male Endlers, 3 Otos, & 3 Ghost Shrimp
Filter: AquaClear 50 with foam, fiber, & 2 biomax bags

I'd never heard of them and just did an image search on google. Very cute little guys. They don't appear to be readily available in the fish trade. I can't even find any on aquabid. :(

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Arn't they though and I love the fact that they are so tiny and very seldom, if ever, leave the substrate. I did a search here and see a senior member named ghreed has some.

My search continues.

Looks like they will be hard to find. I checked some exporter lists from 08-09. Aquarium Glaser, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore none of them had them listed.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

i would try to contact "Corys R Us"........They are an importer out of Florida who has quite the selection of Cories and are very reputable for selling quality fish............I have personally used them twice for hard to find species and the fish have done well thru the shipping and are still thriving in my tanks....I'm sure they will try to help, or at least put you on a list for wanted fish.....Good Luck!

I've settled with 8 Pygmaeus (for now). Got them at a LFS for $1.99 each @ 1/4". That very same LFS look promising as to their commitment to help me find the Cochui. I'll post again if it happens.

btw: even corys R us could not help, to my surprise.

Some of the rarer cories are only availalble seasonally. The dry season in SA is just starting, so you should check again in February or March, when the water is way down and the rarer cories become easier to catch.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
