Red Sailfin Cory

The red sailfin cory, short for the red Venezuelan sailfin cory, has an orange dorsal fin but not as bright or large as the Adolfoi cory. The orange color does not begin to appear until the cory is about one inch in length and it is a very pretty cory from Venezuela. These are rare in the wild but are now captive bred and becoming more popular. Some, not AFS of course, call this cory the poor man's cory adolfoi.
