(Other members of the genus Corydoras)
ADULT SIZE: 7 cm
WATER CONDITIONS: Very hard and alkaline
TEMPERATURE RANGE: 20-25 C
FOOD: Feed Corydoras leopardus small live-foods and fine grade dried foods
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.
