|Cat-eLog Data Sheet|
|Scientific Name||Corydoras eversi Tencatt & Britto, 2016|
|Common Names||C065, Guarana Cory
Soda Pop Cory
|Type Locality||Goiás, Montes Claros de Goiás, unnamed stream tributary to the rio Araguaia, Brazil, 15°53'10''S, 51°41'34''W.|
|Pronunciation||Kory DOOR ass|
|Etymology||Cory = helmet, doras = skin. In this case it was incorrectly used to mean armour (cuirasse) instead of skin in allusion to the dual rows of plates that run along the flanks of this genus.|
|Size||55mm or 2.2" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||Corydoras are identified by their twin rows of armour plates along the flanks and by having fewer than 10 dorsal fin rays. They are most commonly confused with the other genera in the sub-family, namely Brochis, Scleromystax and Aspidoras.
A round nosed species with bright yellow flanks and fins both adorned with medium sized black spots.
|Sexing||Females grow larger and are more full-bodied, this is best observed from above the fish. Males will typically have more pointed as opposed to more rounded fin tips as they mature.|
|General Remarks||Guarana is a popular Brazilian soft drink, it is bright yellow in colour and so matches the bright yellow background colour of this attractive species. Hence the common names Guarana and Soda Pop Cory.|
|Distribution||Tributary to the middle Rio Araguaia, Goia, Brazil.

|Feeding||Will accept a wide range of commercial foods including tablets, granules and flakes. Live (or frozen) foods such as bloodworm, white worm, grindal worm, Daphnia and tubifex are readily accepted.|
|Furniture||Shade provided by overhanging rock work, arching bogwood, tall or floating plants are all that is required. Ideally substrate should be sand, but rounded gravel is an imperfect alternative. Avoid keeping over rough edged (chipped) gravel, this will increase this risk of damage the fishes barbels when it tries to dig.|
|Compatibility||A peaceful, shoaling, community fish.|
|Suggested Tankmates||All Corydoras should be kept in groups of at least 6 of the same species. Otherwise compatible with most other types of fish that are reasonably peaceful, as long as they don't see a Corydoras as a snack.|
|Breeding||Has been bred in captivity and doesn't differ from common Corydoras breeding style and rearing practice.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
