Remarks: The Black Diamond Cory, Corydoras sp. CW049, are a robust Cory from the border of Colombia and Brazil near Leticia. They have tan bodies with a black mask over the eyes and a large black diamond spot that runs from their stomach into the dorsal fin.
They are active shoalers and will stay near conspecifics, making for a lovely sight. Corydoras feed by searching through sand with their barbels, and sand is necessary for the long-term health of Corys. Gravel substrates tend to be abrasive and damage the barbels, leading to infections and an inability to find food.
Corydoras are often looked at as "scavengers," but they should be treated in a similar fashion as the rest of your fish. They are omnivores and require a mixed diet. Flake food is readily accepted, as is baby brine shrimp and small pieces of blackworm.
