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

Avoid tankbusters! Too many tropical fish stores sell small fish that will continue growing until too big for any home aquarium. Rehousing can be very difficult indeed. Avoid species such as the shovel-nosed and red tailed catfish
