The sixray corydoras (Aspidoras pauciradiatus) or false corydoras is a tropical freshwater fish belonging to the Corydoradinae sub-family of the Callichthyidae family. It originates in inland waters in South America, and is found in the upper Araguaia River basin in Brazil. It was originally described as Corydoras pauciradiatus by Weitzman & Nijssen in 1970.

The fish will grow in length up to 2.9 centimeters (1.1 inches). It lives in a tropical climate in water with a 6.0 - 7.2 pH, a water hardness of 12 dGH, and a temperature range of 22 - 25°C (72 - 77°F). It feeds on worms, benthic crustaceans, insects, and plant matter. It lays eggs in dense vegetation and adults do not guard the eggs.

The sixray corydoras is of commercial importance in the aquarium trade industry.
