Relevant Information:

This was the first unidentified (at the time) Corydoras to be given a C-number in 1993 by the DATZ magazine. It is variable in its markings and colouration but always carries a blotch at the base of the dorsal fin. The last three images show a variant from the normal colour pattern. Named after the river where it was found, the Rio Icana. Aquarium Care: As of this genera they are peaceful and can be housed in a community tank with non aggressive tankmates. Best to purchase a few individuals as they do like their own company. Breeding: Egg layers who distribute their adhesive eggs on the glass walls and plants in the aquarium. Diet: Omnivore. Will take most aquarium fare such as flake, tablets, live and frozen foods.
