This species of Corydoras has yet to be bred in the aquarium. In the wild Pinkthroat corydoras are known to be egg scatterers and breed by the same methods as other species from the same family.


The expected life span for Corydoras spilurus is 3-5 years.

Short description

Provide a fine gravel or sandy substrate to protect their barbels and add hiding places in the tank. Corydoras spilurus must be kept in small groups of at least 5 fish and require good water quality. They are quite rare in the aquarium trade and the price for them will reflect this.
