Relevant Information:

Very similar to C. reynoldsi but does not possess the high dorsal fin of this species and has slightly different colour markings. When first imported it was known in the aquarium trade as Corydoras sp. "Asher", after the fish exporter Asher Benzaken and gained the C-number of C064. 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.
