Corydoras leucomelas

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Callichthyidae
Origin : Colombia, Peru
Length : 4,5 cm - 1.8"
Min. length aquarium : 50 cm - 20"
English name : False Spotted Corydoras
Peaceful schooling fish that can be kept together with other small fishes such as small characins and dwarfcichlids.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background because they need hiding places.  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.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known yet.
