Mostly Carnivorous. Sinking pellets or flakes. Supplement with live or frozen bloodworms or white or grindal worms.
Temperature of 72 to 79°F (22 to 25°C), pH 6.0 to
7.5, 2-25° dH
Moderate to advanced. Sensitive to water conditions use good maintenance
habits as needed with all fish.
Excellent fish for peaceful, non-competitive aquariums or a species-only tank. Other corydoras, otos, rasboras, shrimp, or characins would be good tank mates. Could co-exist with dwarf cichlids, but would compete for same tank space.
Some experience required.
A relatively small corydoras. Like most corydoras, needs a sand or fine gravel substrate.
