Food and feeding

As Slant-bar corydoras are most active in the evenings, try to feed them at this time. They will accept quality flake or granules for the staple diet, but also supply treats of brine shrimp and blood worms twice a week. The addition of alga wafers to the diet will provide the required vegetable matter.


South America; Slant-bar corydoras are found in the Rio Meta, Colombia.


When viewed from above the females are slightly larger and have a stockier body shape.


This species of Corydoras has yet to be bred in the aquarium but in the wild they are egg scatterers as with other Corydoras species.


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

Short description

Use a fine gravel or sand for the substrate to protect their delicate barbels. Corydoras loxozonus are a social fish so need to be kept in small groups of at least 5 specimens. They are ideal for a community set up but always keep with peaceful tank mates.
