Meet Corydoras eversi, a new cory species

Aquarium specimen of Corydoras eversi , nearly 37.0 mm SL, showing its peculiar bright orange color pattern. Photo by Hans-Georg Evers.

The new cory is described in the latest publication of Neotropical Ichthyology.  Its etymology is particularly interesting to aquarists:


Corydoras eversi is named in honor of Hans-Georg Evers, a dear friend and great enthusiast in the fishkeeping hobby, especially in the breeding of Corydoras species. Hans collected the specimens of C.eversi that apparently originated all the stock present in the hobby until the present day and also the specimens used herein for the description.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
