Hognose Brochis (Brochis multiradiatus)

$29.99$36.99

One of the largest species of Cory Catfish, the Hognose Brochis is found in shallow streams and lakes in the Eastern Amazon and Napo rivers in Peru and Ecuador.

Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their size, Hognose Brochis make for great bottom feeders or dithers in aquariums with medium South or Central American Cichlids or other predatory fish which aren’t large enough to try to make a meal of them.
