Corydoras nanus ?

Post by kiwidu21 »

Hi

I bought a cory but the saleswoman no longer had the name. In order to find its congeners I would like to know its species. I'm thinking of Corydoras nanus, what do you think?

Hello, I really need your help to identify this little guy. I can't find congeners for it if I don't know what species it belongs to.
If there are any distinctive signs that do not appear in the photos, do not hesitate to ask me.

Hi kiwidu21,

I can't speak for what species are imported to France, but in the USA, true is almost never imported. The fish we get which looks similar to C. nanus, is . Stores sell it as C. nanus or as the "San Juan" cory. It is collected in and exported from Peru.

I suspect that's what you have.

Cheers, Eric

Thank you for your answer.
There is no particular character that could differentiate the two species apart from location?
