Had a conversation re this species. Descriped as being similar to C.melanistus but with longer snout & clear caudal. C.amandjanea possibly?
Anyway hoping to receive 5 next week.

C.'tocantins' origin

Ian, It's from a wholesalers. I should briefly explain my situation. I'm disabled & house bound but I have a mate with a shop who lets me know whats available & saves any I want. Presently they're still at the wholesalers & I don't even have a discription! In the past I've had C.'latus' - pantanalen...

Corydoras 'tocantins'

I have the opportunity of obtaining this Cory.

Similar species

As I expected the infected fish died.
Fortunately still have a pair. Whenever I get a decent photo I'll get it on line.

Unnatural colouring!

Hello everybody, Do I feel like an idiot! Went in the fishhouse this morning to discover the cause of the redness in the Cory is due to some kind of hemorrhagic infection, I presume. I've had this fish for several months and have no idea what's caused it. Started a course of Myxazin but think it's c...

'Dyed' Cory

First let me say the photo is not the best but let me assure you that in no way is this fish dyed! As I said 'normally' the rear half is paler, a 'pastel' red. I have a trio, two males & a female. Theres an obvious colour difference between them. They came from the wholesalers via my mate who saw th...

Unknown 'RED' Cory!

At last got a photo of one off my unknown Corys. I've never seen anything similar. Normally the rear half is more of a pale reddish colour.
Opinions please.
Alan.

Using Alder cones

Can anybody explain use of Alder cones as anti fungal agent re Cory eggs.
Do they have to be removed within a certain time period?
Is a water change crucial?

Unknown species of Corydoras

Hello all,
I've got several species of Corys that I can't identify. Anybody any ideas on these two -

Nearest I could find was C.loxozonus.

I have five of these. I think they're C.pantanalensis.
Opinions please.
