Spotted Shortnose Cory (Corydoras brevirostris)


An attractively marked and somewhat uncommon Corydoras from the Orinoco Basin, the Spotted Shortnose Cory is a peaceful shoaling fish often found in  large groups in the wild. In the aquarium they are hardy and undemanding, an excellent and active bottom-dweller for most community tanks. Like most Corydoras they should be kept in groups of at least five fish.
