|pH||6.0 - 7.6|
|Temperature||20.0-25.0°C or 68-77°F (Show species within this range)|
|Feeding||This species will eat just about any food that sinks down to their level. Flake foods and sinking pellets/wafers make up a good staple diet, for these fish. Frozen and live foods are great as treats.|
|Furniture||Hiding places in the form of caves, driftwood, and plants are appreciated. As these catfish sometimes cavort out in the open, open swimming space is necessary.|
|Compatibility||Very peaceful fish, and will never bother a tankmate. They are completely harmless.|
|Suggested Tankmates||Avoid large or aggressive fish which are not good tankmates for any Corydoras. Small plecos, tetras and dwarf cichlids are good tankmates.|
|Breeding||This cory spawns the way most corys do. The pair will adopt the ''T'' position, and the female will gather eggs and sperm. Then, she swims to a flat, clean surface (usually the glass), and deposits the eggs. This is repeated numerous times.|
|Breeding Reports||There is but a single breeding report, read it here.|
