Gold Stripe Cory (Corydoras sp. CW023)

Out of stock

Remarks: Gold Stripe Corys (Corydoras sp. CW023) are very similar to the ever-popular Gold Laser Cory, C. sp. CW010. They have a shorter orange stripe beginning at their shoulder than Gold Lasers do, and they have rounder bellies and are less olive colored. These certainly deserve a similar reputation!

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.
