Breeding Brochis splendens​ by Don Kinyon.

Brochis are catfish from South America closely related to the Corydoras. The Brochis splendens is one of the most commonly available of the species and was first described in 1855 by Castelnau. They come from the Amazon, Rio Ucayali, Rio Ambiyacu and tributaries. Most of their habitat consists of soft, acidic, slower-moving waters that contain a good amount of vegetation.
