Corydoras duplicareus 黑金紅頭鼠
One of the brighter species in the Corydoras Family and a good addition to the aquarium hobby.
Right: High-body variety, thick black band and dark base of the dorsal fin looks handsome. Resemble C. adolfi except of much thinner irregular band. In nature, comes in variety of band patterns and shapes. C. adolfi is rarer in the hobby.
Corydoras is peaceful but active as a bottom feeders. They are easily assimilated into planted tank aquarium setup despite different eco background from it's native. There is suspicion that a more balance pH myabe a more conducive environment to them.
On the left, result of successful breeding of the species. I have reached "F2" stages.
