Corydoras septentrionalis: Unusual ornamental fish bred in Indonesia
Corydoras septentrionalis is rather rare in the trade. It occurs in Venezuela and Colombia. The species is very similar to Corydoras ellisae from Paraguay. It differs from C. ellisae mainly due to the much longer snout and the colorless fin (with a spotted pattern in C. ellisae).
We were a bit surprised to obtain that particular species from Indonesia now. There are so many species in Corydoras. But two features are very special in C. septentrionalis. First: there is a very nice metallic green shine on the body when the light falls in the right way. And twice: we hardly ever observed a species of Corydoras so far that has such a fascinating behavior. When the males compete with each other or when the winner of the competition courts before the female this proceeding is so fast that the eye can hardly follow.
