Relevant Information:

Corydoras haraldshultzi is sometimes confused with C. sterbai.The 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. araguaiensis, but it has no orange colouration to the fins. Other similar looking species are C. spectabilis and C. isbrueckeri. 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.
