Cannot get over how cute these guys are! Aspidoras pauciradiatus
 
I have kept aspidoras before, but never this particular species. they are so darn cute, swimming all over the midwater, hitching rides on apple snails, and just adorable with their wiggletude!

They're very closely related - part of the same subfamily (Corydoradinae) - but like Brochis spp., they're a genus in their own right.

Yup, cory cousin :) These guys stay teeny, around 1.2"
