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

The biggest killer of tropical fish is overfeeding. Uneaten food decays and pollutes the water, even with adequate filtration. Adult fish should remain unfed one day each week, and almost all commonly available species will be completely fine if unfed during a two week vacation
