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.
