Corydoras baderi


Family: Callichthyidae
Species: Corydoras baderi (synonym: Corydoras oelemariensis)
Common Name: None
Size: Adult Male: 1.85 inches (4.7 cm)
Habitat: SOUTH AMERICA: Par in Brazil, Coastal Rivers of Guyana, Maroni River in Suriname.
Min Tank Size: 20 gallons (75 liters) or larger.
Min Shoal Size: Best in groups of six or more.
Diet: OMNIVORE: Enjoys a variety of foods including live and frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, daphnia, tubifex and white worm. Compliment with algae wafers and sinking foods for catfish.
Behavior: Very peaceful
Water: Temperature of 72 to 79°F (22 to 26°C), pH 6 to 8.0, 2-25° dH
Care: Easy. A sand substrate is preferred, but small, rounded gravel is also acceptable for ensuring the safety of this fish's barbels. These fish are very comfortable in a tank that is well-planted around the margins yet has a center of open swimming space. As well as the plants, caves, driftwood and rock work also provide shelter. Water should be very clean, high in dissolved oxygen and low in nitrates.
Communities: Perfect for the peaceful aquarium. Compatible tankmates might include small to medium-sized fish such as danios, rasboras and tetras. Corys are busier and more as part of a shoal of at least 6 (with a 1 male to 1 female ratio observed.)
Suitability: Good for all.
Note: Corydoras are nocturnal and are best fed at night when they can have their own time to feed and not have to compete with diurnal fish for food.
