Corydoras duplicareus is a small, peaceful species of catfish from South America. They get their name because they share a very similar appearance with a previously described species, C. adolfoi. They have a thick black bar along their back and forehead, separated by a bright orange stripe at the top of the shoulder.
We highly recommend using either sand substrate, or small-non sharp gravel due to the fact that they are usually sifting through the substrates.
Corydoras are omnivores and it is recommended that you feed them algae wafers and regular pellet/wafers as well.
