Corydoras guapore originates from the River Guapore in South America.
Females tend to be plumper than the males and slightly larger.
There are not any reported cases of this breeding in the aquarium. It is however believed that Guapore corys reproduce in the wild the same as other Corydoras, laying there eggs amongst the plants and on the substrate.
The expected life span of Guapore cory is 3-4 years.
This species is very distinctive. Corydoras guapore have red, blushing cheeks and a much more, rounded head than other species. Guapore corys are sometimes hard to found, this makes them a bit more expensive to buy.
