Rob McLure is currently a member of the Milwaukee Aquarium Society in Milwaukee, WI.  With over 25 years of experience keeping fish, he has tried virtually everything (especially in his college days) from big cichlids to mini reefs.  Rob has bred more than 70 species of aquarium fish and currently maintains more than 50 tanks in his small basement fishroom.  He has focused almost exclusively on Corydoras for the past 3 years and has managed to breed nearly 40 species in the Corydoradinae group to date, many of those multiple times.

Rob was introduced to Corydoras when his father bought a few “Julii catfish” at a local pet shop for his younger sister “Julie”.   These were fascinating to watch and throughout the years he always found room to keep some of the small and interesting bottom dwellers.  Several years back after a spawning spree of breeding 25 different fish in one year Rob decided he wanted more focus in what he was doing.   Out of all the fish spawned
that year, the Corydoras paleatus were by far the most fun so the choice of what to focus on was easy.   Three years later he now has more than 80 types of Corydoradinae fish in his home and has been told by friends and family that he most likely qualifies as an addict of some sort! Rob hopes to continue breeding and enjoying Corydoras for as long as he possibly can.
