This species of Corydoras has yet to be successfully bred in the aquarium. In the wild it is believed that Corydoras sodalis breed the same as all Corydoras species.


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

Short description

Because False network corys are classed as a social species, they must be kept in small groups of at least 5 fish. Add hiding places to the tank and keep with peaceful tank mates. Always use sand or fine gravel for the substrate to protect their barbels from getting damaged.
