Relevant Information:

Known in the trade under the name Corydoras sp. ‘Guarana’ after the Brazilian lemonade of the same colour. Given the C-code number of C065. Aquarium care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Diet: A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will keep your Corydoras in good health. Remarks: As of the latest paper by Tencatt & Britto, 2016, this species has now been described as Corydoras eversi, named in the honour of Hans-Georg Evers who has for many years, alongside Ian Fuller, been at the forefront of the ever evolving Corydoras catfish subfamily Corydoradinae.
