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

Should I get rid of snails? Snails in the aquarium can be very useful. Many fishkeepers tend to overfeed a little, and this extra food sinks to the bottom and decays, polluting the aquarium water. Snails will happily come and eat up the left overs though - if you have an outbreak of snails you are most likely overfeeding your fish! If you really do want to remove snails, fish like the clown loach, and several puffers will eat them - but do make sure they are compatible with the other fish in your tank
