Peppered Cory
(Corydoras paleatus)

Common names:
Peppered cory,

Size: 7cm

pH: 6.0-7.5

Tempº: 24ºC - 29ºC (75 F - 84 F)

Tank region: Bottom layer

Origin: South America

Gender: Females are larger

Notes: One of the commonest catfish available, the Peppered cory is a great addition to the community because it occupies a layer that most fish don’t, is very active and most importantly one of the single most peaceful fish available.

They should be kept in groups of at least 3 – but it is far, far better to have them in schools of at least 6 because the fish will be happier and more active. They should NEVER be kept in singles because they will ‘waste away’ on the tank floor. These fish do not come to the surface for food – so the need to be fed bottom feeder pellets.
