Very peaceful community fish which is best kept in groups of 5 to 6 or more. As with most corydoras, these fish will eat most food which sinks to the bottom of the tank and great for clearing leftover food in Discus aquariums.
Requires a sand or small gravel substrate and prefers a planted tank. Keeping a cory on sharp or large gravel can lead to damage to their barbels, which when infected will make it hard for the cory to find food. Corys are sensitive to salt, as with other scaleless fish, adding salt to the tank will cause them harm.
