Size 55mm or 2.2" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.
Identification The colour pattern forms an even arch of dark stripe from the snout to the lower back. Sometimes the cleithrum will have an iridescent gold or bronze color. Corydoras granti is very similar to Corydoras arcuatus. C. granti can be distinguished by having a shorter, more rounded snout, whereas C. arcuatus has a longer straight snout. Also, the posterior margin of the pectoral fin spine of C. granti has serrations pointing toward the spine tip, whereas these serrations point toward the origin of the spine (toward the body) on C. arcuatus. Finally, when full grown, C. granti is a smaller species than C. arcuatus.
Sexing Females larger and fuller bodied.
General Remarks Corydoras granti is very similar to C. arcuatus , and specimens of C. granti are often sold by pet stores under the name C. arcuatus. A key to the arc-striped corys can be found in this forum thread. See also Grant, S. 2014. Journal of the Catfish Study Group (UK), 15(4), 24-29.
