Food and feeding

Dainty corys will accept all foods; an occasional treat of bloodworms is readily accepted. Include in the diet algae wafers or sinking pellets and feed them early evening as they are most active at night.

Origin

Dainty corys originate from Colombia and Venezuela.

Sexing

Males tend to be smaller than the females with a slimmer appearance.

Breeding

As with most cories, dropping the water temperature should induce spawning. Dainty Corys will lay orange eggs on the underside of leaves just above the substrate. When the eggs hatch the fry will be very small, try to feed them on Infusoria initially and then as they grow move them onto newly hatched brine shrimp.

Lifespan

Potential life span is up to 5 years but there are cases of them living longer.

Short description

Like all Corydoras, Corydoras habrosus need to be kept in groups of at least 5 fish. These are a pygmy species and are sometimes known as the salt and pepper Cory.
