Very similar to C.
reynoldsibut 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.
