The Sterbai Cory Catfish is among the most popular members of a widely popular genus due to its lovely colouration, active nature, and peaceful disposition!

Sterbai Cory Catfish (Corydoras sterbai) is among the most popular of the numerous currently known species within the Corydoras genus, and this can be credited to its beautiful markings.  Its head features white dots on a black background, which is a unique characteristic for corydoras, as most of them have these colours reversed.  The body is speckled with both black and white dots that provide absolutely stunning contrast, especially with its orange pectoral fins. Much like its cousin, the Peppered Cory (Corydoras paleatus), this catfish exhibits very interesting and often playful behaviour. It is fairly small (they grow to a maximum of about 2-1/2 inches), so it is ideal for the home aquarium.
