Description

Corydoras concolor

Corydoras concolor is a peaceful bottomdweller that should be kept in a school. The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background. A part of the bottom of the aquarium should be free and should be sandy because they like to search after food in it and their tender barbels are easily damaged.

This species was first described by Weitzman in 1961.

Diet

They are omnivorous. You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

Breeding Corydoras concolor

Breeding Corydoras concolor is not easy. GH and pH of the water should be low. A small amount of eggs are laid and fertilised between fine leaved plants like Java Moss. When the young fishes are swimming free you can feed them the first days with baby brine shrimp, and later with fine crushed dry food.
