CORY CATFISH

Family: CALLICHTHYIDAE

Corydoras

This family of fishes is best represented by the friendly corydoras genus. They have bony plates, an adipose fin and a varying number of barbels.

Originating from South America, these fish are best kept in acidic water but can live in neutral water because most are now bred in Asia. pH range of 6-7 is ideal. A well planted aquarium with soft substrate is recommended.

Corydoras are gregarious and should be kept in shoals of a least 4-6.

All bottom dwelling fish are scavenges so feeding is easy. Flake, frozen and sinking pelleted food are good for a complete diet.

When breeding, the female carries the fertilized eggs to a selected site, often a broad leaf, and places the eggs there to hatch. Parents should be removed once spawning is complete.

Ideal tank mates include: Tetras Barbs Danios Angelfish Discus Rasboras Gouramis Rainbowfish Guppies Platies Mollies Swordtails Plecos Peaceful scavengers
