Behaviour[edit | edit source]
- A peaceful active bottom-dwelling fish that will behave much like Corydoras.
Identification[edit | edit source]
- Can be mistaken for Corydoras, but has a different shaped skull. It is quite elongated, similar to pygmy Corys, with a creamy white base colour covered in darker speckles and spots.
