Little Cory (Corydoras nanus)

Out of stock

Remarks: Corydoras nanus is a very uncommon and fairly small species of cory catfish. Their base color is somewhat tan but can take on a gold hue. The little cory has an attractive pattern made up of horizontal lines of closely-spaced brown spots. These cories were collected in Columbia but are typically known to be found in Suriname.

   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.
