I enjoy keeping a few schools of cories so when I saw these at the wholesaler I really tried to pass them up,a little pricey but couldnt. Smiley
Really nice black bodies with brown fins,A little over 1".They are in a 20g long with gravel ugf and sponge filter,a little java moss and 2 anubias nana,no tankmates except some ramshorns and mts. Never saw them before anywhere.I havent found any info on them online,not in english anyway lol

I'm not really a fan of the Cory's but those guys are really cool! How come your Java moss is so fine and wispery (it's a verb really Wink )? Mine is all thick and coarse...

I don't think they are a dwarf species but only time will tell.They are definitely "built" like a cory and their behavior is like other cories.
Now the question is do I put the panda guppies in with them or do I go opposite and put the albino flame guppies with them and the pandas with the albino aeneus cories?lol

Oh Yeah...Very pretty..reminds me of a mini-red-finned shark, notice the all too familiar elongated body as opposed to the short stout robust bodies of your typical coryadora...I like em'

I wonder who's importing them?
Tee asked Frank about them but without a firm name he wasn't able to find them on his lists.

Well I got them at cichlids.net(atlantis) they are an importer,but I havent seen them again on thier site.If you want to try and get some try contacting  them.Its possible the fish I saw sunday came from there,I did see some donation bags from them.Really nice folks I enjoyed my trip there and would go again.

Theres a debate going on at anubias design about these.Mark was trying to get them from suppliers in the Czech republic,believing they are a tank bred strain.A Venezuelan biologist says they're a black form of C. venezuelanus.this is fun! jolly1
