    You can get them in major aquarium shops, Seaview, C328, Y618, Pasir Ris OTF etc.

    Will get somemore if I see them again.
    The rest like gold line or green line too x for me to get, > 1 red note.
    Adolfoi?? That must have been some time ago that you got them right? Haven't seen adolfoi shipment in ages.

    Wow that is a very impressive list! You must really have a way with corydoras, how do you make them get into the mood so often?

    Nope, just got them this month, very rare indeed 1st time I see them in shop. Hope more shipment will be in.
    Will post pictures once I got the chance.
    One more I like is the skunk cory but lost 2 of them a while ago, not used to my tank.

    Auntie over at C328 has a new shipment of them in...
    Saw a group of about 20+ pieces hidden away at the apisto racks at the back.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I think those at the apisto racks are C121, they have the distinctive red spot on the cheeks Different to adolfoi in that aspect I believe.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Thanks for the correction...
    They do look VERY similar though!
    Anyone care to confirm species that's available at C328?

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Possibly C. duplicareus if you got them recently. Auntie got 2 batches in, one was C121 and the other was C. duplicareus. Don't think adolfoi have reached our shores in recent times...most of those id-ed as adolfoi in shops end up being duplicareus instead.

    Hmm, how do you differentiate C.duplicareus and C.adolfoi then since even the shops might have labelled them wrongly?
    I got mine from a tank labelled C.adolfoi in the east fish farm.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    My C. duplicareus looks like this..


    while C. adolfoi looks like this..


    Key difference is the black markings on the body of the fish, C. duplicareus has a thicker band.

    Yup, close enough. I had mostly Java Ferns instead of Anubias at that point of time and my sand was a lighter beige-like colour. The pygmaeus deposited their eggs all over the place, be it on the tank wall or the plants. I have a set of photos from their spawning run but not very clear.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Nice going aquanatics!

    I just got a shipment in too.
    Be prepared for losses if they are wild caught fish from 20-50%!
    We don't see them much for this very reason.
    It seems they don't travel well.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Thanks! I was lucky enough to purchase the last 30 from my recent Taipei trip and as mentioned they do not travel well.
    I understand they're of german import based on the shop keeper's knowledge.
    I've already lost 7 this week,hope the casualties are kept to a minimum.
