Brochis multiradiatus (Hog-Nosed Brochis)

A relatively common fish that resembles Corydoras, but differ primarily in size and the fact that they have 17 rays on the dorsal fin compared to Corydoras which have 6 to 8 rays. They do get quite large and will reach a size of around 8cm.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A peaceful fish that does best in a school, but because of their ultimate size do ensure that you provide them with plenty of tank space if a group is purchased.

There is little information concerning the breeding of these fish apart from the fact that they breed in a similar way to Corydoras and the fry are very sensitive to water quality.

Most of their time is spent foraging for food. A perfect inahbitant for a community tank.
