AQUARIUM CARE: A very tough little cory, that thrives on most foods; flake, pellets, algae wafers, but, like all Corydoras, particularly fond of worms and insect larvae. This small catfish makes an excellent community fish.

BREEDING: Eggs usually laid on the aquarium glass after a water change. Cooler water can initiate spawning, along with regular feeding of quality livefoods.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Vegetarian fish Some catfish have a largely vegetarian diet; feed them potato, lettuce, cucumber or blanched peas. Some of these will have to be weighted down, or held in place with a commercially available 'lettuce grip'. As with all fish, do not over feed; remove uneaten vegetable matter after a couple days
