Common name:Peppered cory
Scientific name:Corydoras paleatus
Synonyms:(none)
Size:Up to 4" (10cm)
Origin:South America (Brazil and Argentina)
Tank setup:Planted tank, preferably with sand substrate - if gravel is used it should be smooth and rounded.
Compatibility:A peaceful community fish.
Temperature:20-26oC (68-79oF)
Water chemistry:Clear, neutral water, exact pH and hardness values not critical.
Feeding:Omnivore: Sinking pellets and granular foods, frozen/live foods.
Sexing:Females are larger than males, with a more rounded shape.
Breeding:Will spawn easily if the water quality is good, in typical Corydoras fashion.
Comments: One of the larger Corydoras, this is a popular species for the community tank. These catfish are hardy, long-lived and easy to breed, and therefore make ideal fish for beginners.
