Adolfo's Cory Description: They are hardy fish, if taken care of properly. Hiding places in the form of decorations and clumps of plants are greatly appreciated. Open swimming space is equally important, though. They should be kept in a tank with either a sand or rounded gravel substrate, to prevent barbel damage. High levels of nitrate can cause barbel erosion, so these should be kept low.

Tank Mate Compatibility: Other community fish.

Adolfo's Cory Breeding & Spawning: Similar to that of other Corydoras. In a tank with soft water and an acidic ph, spawning is not hard to encourage. Condition these fish and change the tank's water frequently, and they should spawn readily. Females will lay eggs a few at a time, and usually place them on the aquarium glass. Fry should be fed with sinking fry foods, though it is reported that they are sometimes tough to feed. The fry should be kept with their parents, who show them how to eat.

Determining Adolfo's Cory Sex: Females tend to be thicker and larger than males.

Aquarium Region: Bottom.
