Small, semi-transparent silvery-white fish with black markings on the body and fins. The dorsal fin is marked with a distinctive black blotch. Quite a streamlined body shape.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A tiny relative of the Corydoras widely kept in community tanks. Quite a delicate fish, but does well in peaceful planted tanks alongside neons, whiptail catfish and other docile species. Choose tankmates that do not need especially warm water.
Likes to rest on plants close to the surface of the water. Should not be kept in a deep tank!
Feeds readily on bloodworms, daphnia and other small live foods. Enjoys frozen foods, and will accept catfish pellets as well. Not much use as a scavenger though, and should not be expect to survive on just leftovers!
Breeding is very rare, but apparently similar to Corydoras.
|Water Parameters||Soft, acidic water preferred|
|Water Chemistry||less than pH 7 - acidic|
