9 dwarf armored catfish / C. habrosus
Checkerboard dwarf catfish
This dwarf cory has its natural range in tropical South America, where he lives in rivers and streams from Colombia to Venezuela. With a body length of 3 cm in the males and 4 cm in females, he is one of the smallest members of the genus Corydoras. The coloration of these fish can vary somewhat, ranging from silvery gloss on light beige to olive green. The most striking feature is the dark dot pattern on the flanks, the back and the tail fin. Armored catfish feed on all small food particles to be
settle the base and avoid the other fish. To make the food varied, but they should also be fed deliberately. Dry food should alternate with fine live food such as Artemia or Tubifex, and vegetable food. These social animals feel most comfortable in small groups of about 6 animals. As they should like to dig the ground of the aquarium to be sandy and without sharp edges. Also shelters of plants or roots may not be missing in an aquarium with mailed catfishes. Like the other Corydoras species requires the C. habrosus as Darmatmer free access to the water surface to there - if necessary - to absorb atmospheric oxygen to the mouth can. In the socialization of this small and peaceful catfish no larger, aggressive species should be used. The best options are similar peaceful fish, like most types of tetras. [Roland Selzer]
