Excellent fish for peaceful, non-competitive aquariums or a species-only tank. Other corydoras, otos, rasboras, shrimp, or tetras would be good tank mates.
These bottom feeding catfish hail from exotic South American Rivers. These Corys may grow to a max size of 2 inches and live for up to five years in a healthy environment.
As bottom feeders, corys will feed from the waste at the bottom of the tank, and will help keep the environment clean for the rest of your underwater ecosystem. Their diets should be varied, rather than exclusively waste fed. NLS-H20 Stable wafers or Ultra Red are an excellent food choice.
