Remarks: Gold Laser Corys (Corydoras sp. CW010) are one of the most spectacularly colored catfish in the world. Native to Peru, they have olive-green bodies with a fluorescent gold sheen over their scales. From the eye, along their back, and ending at the caudal peduncle, is a bright, shining orange streak. These Corys are visible from across the room, constantly foraging for food and reflecting light off of their "Laser" stripes.
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.
