Remarks: Skunk Corys (Corydoras granti) have a complicated history. They have long been exported both as C. arcuatus and C. sp. C020. However, recent science has described them officially has C. granti. They can be distinguished from the true C. arcuatus by their round, blunt nose. These fish have tan bodies and two black racing stripes running from their nose to their caudal fin. This pattern is considered useful in predator evasion when seen from above.
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.
