Very similar to C.
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. Had the C-number, 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.
