Possibly a real Corydoras julii!
Corydoras julii, Steindachner, 1906

Origin: South-America, Peru, Loreto, Rio Pacaya, tributaries of Rio Ucayali and Rio Yavari. Ecuador, Napo, Rio Yasuni, Rio Napo tributary. Colombia, Rio Caqueta, Rio Amazonas. Brazil, Amazonas, Rio Purus system & Rio Ipixuna.

Etymology: After Juli.

Synonyms:

First import:F. Steindachner, 1903.

Description:Bodycolor yellowish beige with many small spots, that form a broken thin black stripe over the body, with two whitish lines above and below.Dorsal fin has a black blotch. Fins are spotted as well, forming circular lines in the caudal fin. This fish has a short rounded snout, like C. similis.

Care:A 60 cm tank with good filtration, although no strong current is neccessary for the animals well-being. Wildcaught specimens need lots of hideouts to reduce stress, and time to get used to the tank. After that they can be kept easily in a tank.

Temperature:20-26 degrees.

Feeding: Omnivorous. Make sure they get enough to eat. All food is taken if it can be mastered.

Size:5.5 cm

pH: 6.5-7.0 Hardness: 2-20

Breeding: Undescribed. Should be similar to the normal breeding procedures for other corydoras.

Sexual dimorphism: Males are shorter and smaller than the females.

Prices: Netherlands 3€

Additional: This seems to be the short roundsnouted corydoras. It looks similar to leopardus and trilineatus, although their spots form lines.

Picture references: Picture 1: E. Naus.
