Care Guide for Green Aeneus Cory
Green Aeneus Cory inhabits small streams, tributaries, and shallow coastal areas of rivers in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. They belong to the family of Callichthyidae and the subfamily Corydoradinae. They are peaceful, social fish, living in groups of several individuals, and relatively undemanding. In fact, a large group of corys is a sight to behold. Water chemistry is not critical and they can be kept in a wide range of aquarium conditions. They are ideal for mixed community aquariums because of their small size and friendly disposition.

This fish will do great and exhibit the most interesting behavior in well-planted aquariums, with open swimming areas and some hiding places provided by driftwood and rocks. Adding botanicals will also be beneficial, provide visual interest to your aquarium, and more closely mimick their natural habitat. They are very active fish and will constantly swim back and forth, providing lots of movement in the aquarium.
Green Aeneus Corys can be kept with many other peaceful fishes, including discus, tetras, dwarf cichlids, plecos, guppies, and many other community fish. They will readily accept a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods.
