Corydoras cochui
Myers & Weitzman, 1954

The barredtail corydoras or Cochu's catfish, Corydoras cochui, 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 by George S. Myers & Stanley H. Weitzman in 1954. In the system of "C-Numbers" developed by the German fishkeeping magazine DATZ to identify undescribed species of Corydoras in the aquarium hobby, this fish had been assigned number "C22" until it was correctly identified.

The fish will grow in length up to 1 inches (2.5 centimeters). It lives in a tropical climate in water with a 6.0 - 8.0 pH, a water hardness of 2 - 25 dGH, and a temperature of 79°F (26°C). It feeds on worms, benthic crustaceans, insects, and plant matter. It lays eggs in dense vegetation and adults do not guard the eggs.

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