Remarks: Aspidoras poecilus are related to Corydoras, but differ in several ways. They have smaller eyes, longer bodies, and seem to be a bit more active in terms of swimming activity. The shimmering gold bodies glide back and forth across the sand searching for food, and occasionally doing laps around a face of glass. They are not very common in the hobby as this species is found in Brazil, where exporting can be a challenge.
Aspirdoras, like their cousins the Corydoras, are often looked at as "scavengers," but they should be treated in a similar fashion as the rest of your fish. They are omnivores and require a mixed diet. Flake food is readily accepted, as is baby brine shrimp and small pieces of blackworm.
