Corydora Adolfoi or false prophet?

Post by FunkyFredFrog » Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:54 pm

I've just splashed out for 3 lovely little corydora's but wondering if they are true Adolfoi?


Cheers

They are more likely C.duplicareus, I think.
Forever cory!!

with the thicker black band on the back, they are duplicareus. Are adolphoi considered rarer? because I prefer duplicareus over adolphoi :-p

It's one of my Keyhole Cichlids!

I dunno if adolfoi are rarer but the LFS said they didn't get them often and they were really quite expensive! Shame they aren't what they were supposed to be but I like them! :-)

Just like corywink, I like duplicareus more so be in your place, I'd be happier these are not what they were supposed to be ;-) Duplicareus are more expensive (by 1/3rd) than adolfoi here but both are quite rare. I have 6 of them.

Good luck with them!

From what I hear duplicareus are commonly sold as adolfoi. Prety common just check out Aqua Bid, just about every adolfoi on there is Dupli!
