These specialty freshwater catfish are members of the South American Corydoras genus. They may be referred to under many nicknames such as corydorases, cories, cory cats or cory catfish. Cory Cats are some of the most peaceful and entertaining scavengers for a freshwater aquarium, and will thrive in a wide range of water conditions. These catfish are very energetic scavengers that remain relatively small. Because of their small size, they are perfect for keeping the substrate clean in a smaller freshwater community aquarium or nano tanks.
Cory catfish are small, peaceful, bottom-dwelling scavengers that are beloved by all who have owned them. Corys should be kept only with small to medium-sized peaceful fish. Corys, like all catfish, are bottom feeders and scavengers though they also appreciate a meal of brine shrimp. On the one hand, that means they can help to keep your tank clean by finding and eating bits of uneaten food and other debris. On the other hand, Corys tend to make a bit of a mess as they poke through the substrate and send algae and other muck into the water.
