Overview

 

The Longfin Peppered Cory Catfish (Corydoras paleatus "Longfin") is a very animated, distinctively marked schooling fish that is perfect for the community and planted aquarium.  As its name suggests, it has a light tan body covered with black and shiny silver/blue spotting and broken striping. The longfin variety of this species is very exceptional, namely for its extra tall dorsal fin and elegant pectoral fins!

The Longfin Peppered Cory Catfish is a very peaceful schooling fish that is compatible with most nano aquarium animals. It might eat dwarf shrimp fry, but is generally safe to keep with adult dwarf shrimp. It is a classic scavenger and will inhabit and feed at the aquarium floor, which should be comprised of sand or smooth gravel. Very coarse substrate can damage its delicate barbells and underbelly. This fish is otherwise very undemanding as it will accept most dry and frozen foods. It is adaptable to most tropical freshwater conditions as long as standard regular maintenance is performed.
