Assorted Corydoras

The Corydoras catfish is a very peaceful bottom-feeding schooling fish that is compatible with most popular peaceful community aquarium fish species. This listing is for a random selection of assorted corydoras catfish, which may include but not limited to the following species: Green Corydoras, Bronze Corydoras, Panda corys, Orange Venezuelan Cory, Sterbai Cory, Peppered and Albino Cory, plus many more. You will receive a random selection of assorted corydoras catfish - we will endeavour not to duplicate too many species in your assortment.

Corydoras thrive in well-oxygenated planted aquariums with plenty of shady areas amongst driftwood and rocks. The presence of mid-swimming fish will help to encourage the Corydoras out more often. Corydoras have the ability to breathe air intestinally, so a gap should be left between the water surface and the fish tank hood/lid to allow the Cory to come up to the surface and take air in. It is perfectly normal for a Corydoras to do this many times a day.

Are Corys a shoaling fish?
Corydoras are small catfish which is quite happy on its own but even happier in a group of assorted corydoras, and will shoal in numbers. Corys will typically exhibit shoaling or schooling behaviour in groups of six or more, swimming together fluidly upward and down the aquarium.

Will Corys clean my tank?
As a small bottom feeder, the corydoras catfish is an extremely efficient cleaner. It will scavenge the leftovers that have sunk to the bottom, cleaning up after messier fish that feed at the surface and midlevel of the tank. However, Corys do not clear algae from aquarium glass and should not be confused with algae-eating species like plecos (suckerfish!)
