Food and feeding

Will accept all foods offered but ensure that sinking pellets or wafers are added to the tank, this will ensure that Hognosed brochis will get their fair share of food. Live or frozen foods should also be fed as a weekly treat.

Origin

Hognosed brochis are found in the rivers of South America.

Sexing

Females tend to be broader than the males; this is more noticeable if the fish is viewed from above.

Breeding

Spawning is usually induced when performing water changes with cooler water. In the wild these fish prefer to spawn in groups but in the aquarium they will spawn in pairs. Treat the breeding of these fish the same as with other Corydoras species.

Lifespan

Expected life span is 4 years.

Short description

Brochis multiradiatus can be quite expensive to buy but well worth it. Hognosed brochis makes a great community fish and will forage the substrate for food all day. Do not keep it with smaller bottom dwellers as it will out-compete them for the food.
