A ratio of 2 males to 1 female seems to work well with this species. Corydoras similis should be conditioned with live foods for a week and then placed in the breeding tank. The female will carry the eggs to a suitable spot for depositing them; sometimes this will be the tank glass, after 3-4 days the eggs should hatch. The fry can be fed on Infusoria when free swimming.

Lifespan

The expected life span of Smudge spot cory is 3-5 years.

Short description

Keeping Corydoras similis with tetras or dwarf cichlids is ideal. They must be kept in groups of at least 6 fish.
