Agassizi's Cory

Agassiz's Cory originates from Western South America. It is found in the vicinity of Iquitos, Peru. This small and peaceful corydoras has an attractive patterning of dark spots against an almost-reddish background. The fish also sports a distinct black blotch located on the top through the dorsal.  

Care Guide for Agassizi's Cory

Agassiz's Corydoras is a small, social, and peaceful shoaler. It should be kept in a group. Keeping this cory in groups will make it feel more secure and allow it to display its natural behavior. Like all cory catfish, this fish will be preoccupied with foraging for food, constantly "cleaning" the bottom of the aquarium or wherever food may be found.

Max Size:   2 - 3 inches
Water:   72 - 80 F; pH 6 - 7.5
Difficulty:   Easy
Living Zone:   Bottom
Temperament:   Peaceful and Social

gassiz's Cory is not a picky eater and will accept a wide range of foods, including commercially prepared flakes, pellets as well as frozen food like bloodworms or frozen brine shrimp. Ideal aquarium conditions would have plenty of hiding places provided by driftwood or other tank decorations. Incorporating aquarium plants is also highly recommended. Water chemistry is not critical and the fish will do very well in most aquariums.
