It's the size of a small robustus and brochis elegans but look at the color!

Indeed. If they are not stupid expensive I'd buy a group.

Ok - stupid pricing is the norm for this fish I found out! 65.00ea seems extremely high but I have an inquiry from Ian Fuller for some now! Now I have to get at least 20! Also CW04 pics but these are even more!

How many times do I tell you I am trying to get out of this hobby business and then they throw huge LDA105's, 173, 174's, 236 and now 397's at me. It's a conspiracy!! They seem to know when I am waning and then reel me back in like a sucker!! Now these cool @ss cories!
I need a lot more than a support group - maybe an asylum!!
Just placed another huge order for these plecos above for arrival right after New Years! Tanks are full of rare cories and it seems that I hsve just picked up a batch of equally rare plecos. I just added another double 75g tank system (stacked on top of each other) and they will be ready right after Christmas.

Those cories I am finding out may be a new species as per a friends correspondence with Ian Fuller - I also have two other cories that I may need to get identified as he has not seen them either. One is a black faced reynoldsi and the other is just different!

what has always been a trip to me about cories is when a guyanese friend of mine told me that growing up they used to catch and eat them like how people eat sardines/anchovies  :waaaht:   i get that a lot of fish collected in our hobby are also food fish, but not ones this pretty :)  good luck with them curtis

hahah that won't solve your problem :)   I had a native tank in a garage all winter one year, was awesome!  No heaters, just lots of air and nothing else.  only had to break ice a few times from the surface.

I got a list of others from my Peru guy today as well - he's getting some plecos out of Brazil - I ll send Rich the list when I get it. I might be condemned as an enabler out of this whole group so I am the worst guy here!! Lol!

I would believe you but I have lots of concolor in tanks and they are not anything in coloration like them but same body shape. Here is a short video of these guys at the beginning of the video
