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.
