This Corydoras aeneus variant is one of the most strikingly colourful!

The Orange Venezuelan Cory Catfish (Corydoras aeneus "Venezuela") is a natural geographic colour variant of the ever-popular Bronze Cory Catfish. It develops increasingly bright orange colouration along its back as it matures. This orange creates a very striking contrast with the metallic blue-green colouration along the sides of the body of the fish. This variant is not often available and can sometimes demand a high price.
