Care Guide for Orange Laser Cory

Orange Laser Cory, Corydoras aeneus (CW 010), are found in the Amazon River flowing through the Maranon and the Ucayali region in Peru. Together with other cory catfish, they belong to the genius Callichthyidaeand subfamily Corydoradinae. They can be kept in a wide range of aquarium conditions and are ideal for mixed community aquariums because of their small size and friendly disposition.

Water:   70 - 82 F; pH 6.5 - 8
Difficulty:   Easy
Living Zone:   Bottom
Temperament:   Peaceful and Social

Orange Laser Corys are very adaptable and will do well in various tank conditions. Furnishing the aquarium with some decorations, gravel or sandy substrate, live aquarium plants, driftwood, and rocks will make them feel secure and allow them to thrive. Rockwork, small pieces of driftwood will also serve as vantage points for this little catfish from which they can survey the aquarium. Corydoras are conspicuous and active during the day, providing endless hours of entertainment. They tend to occupy the lower part of the tank and search for food in the gravel with their distinctive barbels. They are social fish and should be kept in groups.

Orange Laser Corys can be kept with many other peaceful fishes, including discus, tetras, dwarf cichlids, plecos, and many other community fish. They will readily accept a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods.
