Corydoras ehrhardti
 

Often treated as "scavengers" in the home aquarium, the Corydoras have developed a strong following among catfish enthusiasts, in part due to beautiful Cory Cats like this one. All Corydoras are schooling fish, and should be kept in small groups of no less than a half dozen fish. They cannot subside on flakes or leftovers, and we recommend New Era soft Catfish Pellets or another similar, quality food for these fishes.
Corydoras are quite peaceful, and will mix well with virtually any fish that will not eat them. Care should be taken when placing these with some dwarf cichlids, as spawning pairs of dwarf cichlids may see Corydoras as a threat to their eggs (rightfuly so!) and strike first.

In the wild, Corydoras often form huge, mixed shoals of numerous species. Generally, when we have only a couple of any given species left, we'll combine them into a single tank of "Assorted Corydoras". When ording Assorted Corydoras, you will receive some of these remaining catfish, as well as our pick of any of the ones we currently have in stock. Please note, you may not state a preference or selection on assorted Corydoras: it is our pick. If you want Corydoras panda, order Corydoras panda. :)
