Corydorus caudimaculatus 國王豹鼠

Rare in the hobby. Manage to get my hand of a pair only in Taiwan due to their price tag.
Not many on sale either. It has tall body with a clean dark blue band at the caudal end. Speckled (Small Spots) on the body.

Looks similar to C. similis (longer body). If enough number is collected there's a chance to breed.
Unfortunately for me one of them died soon after. The only nice memory i had is this photo.

Their condition was not good. The last one manage to survive for a couple of years.

C. caudmaculatus is found in Brazil and like most corydoras about 1.5"-2" in size.
