Hognosed Brochis Description:
Great fish for a community tank. Since they can be somewhat rowdy and do grow larger than most cories, larger bottom dwellers might be more appropriate tankmates. They would not be outcompeted for food as smaller Corydoras could be. Brochis multiradiatus is large and robust compared to other fish in the Corydoradinae group, and its deep colors can be eye-catching. These fish are usually sold at a length of five cm or greater, and fetch a high price.
Tank Mate Compatibility:
Other community fish.
Hognosed Brochis Breeding & Spawning:
