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

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
