Corydoras Hastatus is one of 3 nano Corydoras species with the most common being Pygmaeus and Habrosus.
Corydoras Hastatus is now considered to one of the rarest and hardest to breed of the 3 species with their breeding patterns unlike any of the other 2 species.
The Corydoras Hastatus that we are exclusively and privileged to get are bred here in Australia and they are strong. Unfortunately though they are a very hard species to breed and the demand of them will be high it is not a species that we can get in often.
In any given year we can get around 30 pieces max.
This is a great species best kept in nano tanks and with a minimum group of 3.
Temperature: 20 – 26 °C
pH: 6.0 – 7.5
Hardness: 36 – 215 ppm
In other words.
Easy to take care of. Very tolerant to a wide range of conditions. A real beginners' fish
