Native to the Guaporé River region between Bolivia and Brazil, the Sterba’s Corydoras is one of the most popular species of freshwater aquarium catfish due to its beautiful markings.

They are an extremely peaceful catfish, and get along with other friendly tank mates. However, they shouldn’t be kept in the same tank as overly aggressive bottom dwellers, as this can cause competition over substrate space – especially in a smaller tank.
