Guaporé Cory (Corydoras guapore)


An uncommon and attractively marked species of Corydoras, the Guapore Cory gets its name from the river system it inhabits in Southern Brazil and Bolivia. Unlike most Corys which are almost entirely bottom-feeders, the Guapore Cory is uniquely adapted for mid-water swimming and generally spend their time hovering within the water column which makes them a much more active addition to the aquarium than most Corydoras. A hardy species, care requirements in the aquarium are similar to most of their close relatives.
