haraldshultzi is sometimes confused
difference being that C.sterbai has for simplistic reasons
a dark basic body colour with white spots on the head and snout
area, while C. haraldshultzi has it in reverse, a light body
with dark spots/ reticulations. Another Corydoras confused
with C. haraldshultzi is C.
but it has no orange colouration to the fins.
Other similar looking species are C.
spectabilis and C.
Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very
peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tankmates
such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding
purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will be
happier in a group. Diet: Readily accepts a mixed
and varied diet which includes granular foods, tablet food, frozen
bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.
America: Brazil and Bolivia. Type locality:
Brasilien, Rio Guaporé.
(3ins) Female: 8.5cm (3¼ins)
