    Thought I’d share these little beauties with everybody on board. These are pics of some of my fry when they were 4 months old. The fish is new to science and hails from the Rio Paraguay in Argentina. They are a cool water species whose behaviour is similar to most Corydoras. They are single pair spawners as opposed to the orgy that some corys participate in. Eggs are around 1.5mm in diameter.

    That’s a genuinely beautiful fish. Where did you get the picture, pablito?

    As I have always said, I’m not a photographer, however this is one of my many poor attempts at fish photography. I will get better!

    This is one of the fry from last year who is now a full adult with full adult coloration.
    I have had these spawn half a dozen times with between 20 – 50 eggs. Initially they spawned when they were in quarantine and the first I knew was when fry appeared out of a thicket of java moss. After that I started removing eggs and from then I had problems with fertility. Only a few were coming through so I went back to the perennial method of leaving the eggs with the parents and letting the strongest survive. I am trying, at present, to get somebody to do the species description but so far without much luck. Taxonomists appear to be either very busy,strangely lackadaisical or corys are not sexy enough to bother with.

    I will find some time to get some adult pics. and post them for all to see.

    In some others the dorsal and pectoral fins are elongated.
