Corydoras loretoensis

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Callichthyidae
Origin : Peru
Length : 5 cm - 2"
Min. length aquarium : 60 cm - 25"
English name : Loreto Cory
Peaceful bottom dweller.  You should keep at least 6-8 of them.  The aquarium should be planted well 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 suited for the community aquarium very well.

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

Breeding in the aquarium has been succeeded, but i did not find very much details about it.
