Corydoras cruziensis


Family: Callichthyidae
Species: Corydoras cruziensis
Common Name: Santa Cruz Cory, C012,
Size: Adult Male: 1.69 inches (4.3 cm)
Habitat: SOUTH AMERICA: Madeira River basin in Bolivia.
Min Tank Size: 15 gallons (60 liters) or larger.
Min Shoal Size: Best in groups of six or more.
Diet: OMNIVORE: Enjoys live or frozen bloodworms, glass worms and white worms as well as algae wafers and sinking catfish pellets. In nature it feeds on worms, benthic crustaceans, insects and plant larvae, so brine shrimp, daphnia and grindal worms might also be options.
Behavior: Very docile
Water: Temperature of 72 to 80°F (22.5 25.5°C), pH 6 to 7.2, 2-12° dH
Care: Moderate. A substrate of fine, smooth-grained sand is essential for protecting delicate barbels. Keep it very clean to ensure any injury doesn't become infected. A comfortable tank might include rocks, driftwood and densely planted spaces and floating plants for cover.
Communities: Peaceful and a little timid, best kept with calm, non-aggressive, similarly-sized fish such as anabantoids, small characins, small cyprinids, danios, rasboras and small tetras. Most confident within a shoal of 4 6 conspecifics, kept at a 1 male to 1 female ratio.
Suitability: Good for all.
Note: Named for the Bolivian Departamento de Santa Cruz, this uncommon Cory has an estimated lifespan of 3 5 years.
