Emerald Green Cory (Corydoras splendens)

Out of stock

Remarks: Emerald Green Corys (Corydoras splendens) were once considered to be Brochis splendens, a sister genus to Corydoras. They have more than 10 rays in the dorsal fin compared to most Corys, which have 7. This species a fairly robust and grows large. As they grow, they change from a mottled juvenile pattern to a shimmering green-bronze color. 

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.
