AQUARIUM CARE: Corydoras sodalis hails from the Amazon River in Loreto, Peru and Amazonas, western Brazil. It is an easy to keep species, that is not a fussy eater, enjoying live and dried foods - but particularly fond of worms: if possible feed frozen bloodworm, or live white worm, grindal worm or tubifex.

Corydoras sodalis is a good candidate for a community aquarium, though like all Corydoras does best when kept in a small shoal of at least 6-8 individuals.

BREEDING: Captive breeding of this species has not been widely reported.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Cichlids? There are estimated to be over 2000 different Cichlid species in the wild, of all sizes, shapes and colours. Many require very specialist conditions such as those coming from the sandy/rocky waters of Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika. Others, such as the Apistogramma dwarf cichlids from the Amazon basin require softer water and a well-planted tank. In general cichlids do not make good community fish as they can get quite aggressive, especially when spawning - but a specialist cichlid tank is certainly a sight to behold, and can be very rewarding for the more experienced aquarist
