Corydoras duplicareus, , 19

Origin: Colombia, Rio Inirida system and Rio Orinoco system.

Etymology: Unk

Synonyms:None, often mislabeled as Corydoras adolfoi.

First European import: Unk

Description: See picture, the black bar is much broader in Corydoras duplicareus.

Care: See Corydoras adolfoi.

Temperature: 22-26 degrees.

Feeding: Omnivorous, will eat all foods. Not very shy fish, easy to feed.

Size: Up to 5.5 cm

pH: 6.0-7.5

Breeding: Not too difficult, similar to other Corydoras.

Sexual dimorphism: Males thinner than females.

Additional: See also Corydoras adolfoi, usually these fish are sold as adolfoi in shops. It's really hard to get real adolfoi, but Corydoras duplicareus is a prettier fish than adolfoi, and the orange spot stays orange when the fish get older. In C. adolfoi the spot fades to brown in older fish.
