Corydoras concolor

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Callichthyidae
Origin : Venezuela
Length : 5,5 cm - 2"
Min. length aquarium : 70 cm - 25"
English name : Color Corydoras
Peaceful bottomdweller that should be kept in a school.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  A part of the bottom of the aquarium should be free and should be sandy because they like to search after food in it and their tender barbels are easily damaged.

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

Breeding is not easy.  The Gh and Ph of the water should be lower.  A small amount of eggs are laid and fertilized  between fine leaved plants.  When the young fishes are swimming free you can feed them the first days with baby brine shrimp, and later with fine crushed dry food.
