Care Guide for Venezuela Cory

Venezuela Cory are found in Venezuela. 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.

Max Size:   2.5 inches
Water:   72 - 82 F; pH 6.5 - 8
Difficulty:   Easy
Living Zone:   Bottom
Temperament:   Peaceful and Social

Ideal aquariums for this fish would be well-planted, with open swimming areas, and small gravel. Adding driftwood, rocks, and other aquarium decorations would make this cory feel safer, allowing it to exhibit its natural behavior. This cory, like most others, is very active throughout the day constantly foraging for food and providing visual interest to your aquarium.  

Venezuela 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.
