|Cat-eLog Data Sheet|
|Scientific Name||Corydoras sp. (C041)|
|Pronunciation||Kory DOOR ass|
|Etymology||Cory = helmet, doras = skin. In this case it was incorrectly used to mean armour (cuirasse) instead of skin in allusion to the dual rows of plates that run along the flanks of this genus.|
|Size||50mm or 2" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||Corydoras are identified by their twin rows of armour plates along the flanks and by having fewer than 10 dorsal fin rays. They are most commonly confused with the other genera in the sub-family, namely Brochis, Scleromystax and Aspidoras.
Similar to most other Elegans-type corys, but has little or no reticulated/mottled markings. Described in Aqualog All Corydoras as ''similar to C. elegans, but more dark''.
|Sexing||Females are slightly larger and fuller than males when viewed from above.|
|Feeding||Will accept most flake, frozen, or live foods.|
|Furniture||Typical Corydoras ''furniture'' - plants, rocks, driftwood, etc. Needs fine sand or smooth gravel to prevent barbel erosion.|
|Compatibility||Completely peaceful. Should be kept in groups of 6 or more.|
|Suggested Tankmates||All Corydoras should be kept in groups of at least 6 of the same species. Otherwise compatible with most other types of fish that are reasonably peaceful, as long as they don't see a Corydoras as a snack.|
|Breeding||Not accomplished in captivity yet, but probably similar to other Corydoras species.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
