Lineage 9 "Hoplisoma":
Corydoras type fishes come from 9 distinct lineages. For the most part, the species in the Brochis, Aspidoras, and Scleromystax lineages have already been assigned to distinct genera. The remaining lineages are also likely to be split into their own genera once taxonomists get around to reviewing the groupings.
Overview: An attractive cory species with high contrast between dark saddles and a light base body color.
All Corydoras (Corys for short) we have ever kept are perfect citizens in aquariums. They are peaceful, gregarious, and entertaining.
Setup Considerations: Although it is not strictly necessary, all corys will appreciate fine sand substrate to sift through. Watching them do so as they look for food is endlessly entertaining.
Specific Care Requirements: Corys are highly gregarious fish which rely on each other to feel secure. If they had a motto, it would be "Safety in numbers." If kept singly or in small numbers, they will survive. If kept in large groups, they will thrive and reward the aquarist with their "clown car" group antics.
Diet: Peaceful Carnivores: Corys need a lot of protein in their diet. Sinking pellets and wafers, Repashy, frozen, and live foods are all appreciated. To round out the diet, we feed algae wafers, frozen spirulina brine shrimp, or other foods containing veggies every few days.
