    Have had C. adolfoi, C. armatus, C. metae, C. melanistius and C. weitzmani years ago(10 +) in CT... all bought from either Panorama or a wholesaler that closed down years ago - Rainbow aquariums....

    Not seen C.adolfoi for years - my favourite cory after barbatus.... Contact Moolis from Pet Stop - he gets rare Cories at a decent size(3 to 4cm) from time to time in the rarer varieties... Had C. metae a while back

    I have 3 Adolfoi. They are commonly sold as Panda Cory and widely available in Joburg. Bought the latest two at interpet in Cresta :icon_thumright: Love them. The one in my 3FT is my favourite fish :hello2:

    Armatus might be sold locally as Sterbei.

    Try Nick at Hartlands to. I got Similis cories from him a while ago which are also quite a find here. I still have one. He likes bringing in the less mainstream stuff.

    Yup, we have Pandas too, and are expecting Pygmy cory's month end. We mostly always stock Peppered, Albino, Bronze, Julie and Sterbai. We had batches of beautiful long-fin Pandas (tail is twice the length of the fish) (SOLD OUT NOW) and we also have Rabauti's Cory at the moment.

    I'll ask around ... problem with special orders from overseas in a minimum quantity required can sometimes be really high, say 1/8th box which may be 88+ of one type of cory. Let's see what we come up with !

    Thanks very much. I'm sure I can find some people to take 5-10 corydoras each. A mixed batch would be first prize. Please let me know...
