Hi,

I've been searching for the Cory Cochui and have had no luck at all. The best answer I got so far was that they may be seasonal. But I thought that Corys are some of easiest to breed and am wondering why the species that apparently is know to be purely a bottom feeder (as compared to the other dwarf corys) is not as readily available.

Thanks for any input.

I've yet to see this one for sale. Some were collected by Hans Georg Evers (Rio Xingu) and were distributed amongst some fish-keepers and a few F1 fish were knocking about a couple of years ago. Other than that I've not even heard of them being offered.
It might be that they are sold as habrosus which they resemble both in looks and habits so always worth a look through any habrosus tanks in your local dealers.

BAS in Bolton had these in a good few years ago. But that is the last time I saw them for sale.

Although I believe Coryman does have a few of these in his Fish House at the moment.

Thanks Medaka, I've sent Coryman an e-mail with a link to this thread.

Hi Sevlan,

Firstly my e-mail address has recently changed and has now been reset in my profile here.

I do have a small group of C. cochui.

They are rare in the hobby mainly because of where they come from, the Rio Xingu, fishermen there prefer to collect the more expensive fishes, which make then a better living than small cheep Corydoras.

Cheers

Ian
