|pH||6.0 - 7.2|

|Feeding||Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular foods, frozen bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.|
|Furniture||Plenty of hiding places amongst bogwood and rocks. The ideal aquarium substrate to use with these catfish is aquarium sand.|
|Suggested Tankmates||Wherever possible I would recommend that the aquarist keep these catfish in a community aquarium in small groups of six or more, but as the absolute minimum I would suggest three specimens assuming that they are available in these numbers. In their natural habitat Corydoras cochui would be found in relatively large shoals.|
|Breeding||There are documented reports of aquarium spawnings of Corydoras cochui, adopting the typical "T shape" breeding clinch. The spawning activity follows on from a period of conditioning with foods such as Daphnia and bloodworm, and a partial water change using cooler water.|
|Breeding Reports||There are 2 breeding reports, read them all here.|
