CW009 and temperature?

Post by Woodh »

My cw009 are soon finished in quarantine and I am debating where to place them long term(or if they should stay in an aquarium for themselves) but what I get a lot of mixed answers about while googling etc is temperature requirements. What would you guys say is the upper limit for them to stay healthy long term?

They are fish from Peru, so they should not be kept too hot. In my opinion, no more than 24 degrees Celsius

Thanks for the input, ill just keep them in a tank alone till they put on some size and I might have a new community tank setup with proper temp etc, put theirs at 23.5 Celsius and will see how that works in the long run.

The CW009 (Green Laser Cory) are from the Rio Ucayali & Marañón systems in Peru.
The long-term temp should be around 23/24/25C (74-77F) but can go as high as 27C (80F) or as low as 21C (70F).
I tend to keep fish within the middle of the water temperature range long-term.
A beautiful Corydoras.

Water parameters of Rio Ucayali & Maranon systems can be checked on

It's in Spanish but look at figure 4.3. It's got everything.
