Species Information

Scientific NameCorydoras(ln7) venezuelanus  Ihering, 1911
Common NamesVenezuela's Cory
Venezuela-pansermalle (Denmark)
Etymologyvenezuelanus, from Venezuela where the fish is found.
Size55mm or 2.2" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.

Identification

This species can be confused with Corydoras aeneus, and indeed C. venezuelanus is usually considered a junior synonym of that species. However, there is the opinion that C. aeneus should be restricted to the holotype form which is from the island of Trinidad. Furthermore, C. venezuelanus is a large Cory, and is restricted to a limited range in two closed drainage systems (Rio Tuy and Lake Valencia) situated north of the serrania del interior. It is the only Cory in these waters.

Sexing

Females are larger, up to 50mm, and more robust than males as with most Corydoras sp.

Habitat Information

  • pH: 6.8 - 7.8
  • Temperature:19.0-25.0°C or 66.2-77°F 
  • Other Parameters: Prefers clear waters with a neutral pH and moderate hardness.
  • Breeding: Typical of the genus. Ian Fuller reported that his fish spawned the day after a water change when the tank had the following water parameters; ph 7, GH 9dH, KH 2, and temp 76. These parameters are very similar to those found in their natural habitat.
