Food and feeding

False adolfoi corys will accept all foods offered but will need supplements of algae wafers as well as using quality flake. They should be given treats of blood worm, brine shrimp and black worms to keep them in condition.


South America; False adolfoi corys are to be found in the upper tributaries of the River Negro, Brazil.


When viewed from above, the females will have a plumper body shape and will be slightly larger than the males.


Add plenty of plants to the breeding tank and start doing regular water changes with cooler water, these acts as a trigger for spawning. The eggs will be scattered around the tank, even on the glass. After 5 days the eggs should hatch and when the fry are free swimming, they can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp. As they grow they will accept small sinking pellets.


The expected life span for Corydoras duplicareus is 3-5 years.

Short description

Use sand or fine gravel for a substrate and add rocks or wood for hiding places. False adolfoi corys should be kept in small groups of at least 5 fish and they are classed as a peaceful species, this makes them ideal for the community tank.
