sterbai is sometimes confused
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. Aquarium Care: Corydoras sterbaiis much likeany other speciesof
the genus Corydoras, easy to keep but will do better in
a group as they are sociable animals and do like their own company.
They will also appreciate a bit of water movement in the aquarium.
Like most of this genus they are 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. Remarks:
There is now a man made albino varierty of Corydoras sterbai
as can be seen in the thumbnail gallery. Note the
orange pectoral spines.
