his very lovely and rare Cory Catfish is seldom available, especially tank-bred specimens!

The Smudge Spot Cory Catfish (Corydoras similis), also known as the Violet Cory Catfish, is a very uncommon species that is native to Brazil. It is rare in the aquarium hobby, but is in high demand due to the striking dark violet coloration that it develops as it matures. It is a very animated, distinctively marked schooling fish that is perfect for the nano, community, and planted aquarium.
