Concolor Cory Description: These cories are hardy fish, if cared for properly. As they are shoaling fish, they should be kept in groups of at least six. They like to have access to a few hiding places, such as pieces of driftwood. These make the fish feel more secure. Plants are also important, and open swimming space is needed.

Concolor Cory Breeding & Spawning: They spawn best in soft, acidic water. Breeding is similar to other cories, in that the slate cory assumes the "T" position to breed. The female then cups the eggs in her pelvic fins, and places them (and the male's sperm) onto a flat surface.
