Short description

Hiding places should be included in the set up, always leave swimming spaces at the front of the tank. Longnosed corys are ideal for a community tank as they are very peaceful but do not mix with aggressive tank mates. They should be kept in groups of at least 6 fish. This particular species do prefer the lower tank temperatures. Dwarf cichlids and tetras make ideal tank mates.
