Don't forget these...

  1. Aquarium Setup:

    • Provide a spacious tank of at least 20 gallons, as these fish thrive in groups. A larger tank allows for better social interaction.
    • Use a substrate of fine gravel or sand to mimic their natural environment.
  2. Water Parameters:

    • Maintain a temperature range of 72-78°F (22-26°C).
    • Keep the pH level between 6.0 and 7.5.
    • Ensure good water quality by performing regular water changes.
  3. Filtration:

    • Use a gentle filtration system to maintain water clarity without creating strong currents. Corydoras prefer slow to moderate water flow.
  4. Tank Decor:

    • Add hiding spots and plants to create a natural environment and provide refuge for the fish.
    • Include soft decorations, as Corydoras have delicate barbels that are sensitive to rough surfaces.
  5. Diet:

    • Feed a balanced diet of high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, and occasional live or frozen foods like bloodworms and brine shrimp.
    • Ensure that food reaches the substrate, as Corydoras are bottom-feeders.
  6. Social Behavior:

    • Keep them in groups of at least six individuals, as they are social and thrive when part of a community.
    • Avoid keeping them with aggressive tank mates, as Corydoras are peaceful and may get stressed.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Choose tank mates that share similar water parameters and temperament, such as other peaceful community fish.
