After much too-ing and fro-ing of e-mails and pictures from Columbia to the UK in an attempt to determine provenance I have just bedded down a group of 5 of these lovely corydoras. Looking forward to the challenge of trying to breed them.
Thanks to Neal @ Pier Aquatics for all the hard work in acquiring these super rare fishes from Brazil. /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

hola muchacho. como esta usted?
They are one of those fish that seem to be in impossible supply. The true species are rarely found and when they are it is usually as a bycatch in singles. The original collection site as indicated by Rossel in 1963 was the Rio Solimoes which does not seem to be off the beaten track ( "off the beaten track" is all relative, you understand, in the Amazon /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> ). They just don't pop their heads up for catching very often it seems Matt. The other notable piece of info. on these is that they came from Colombia some distance from the original noted locality.
