  Here's a Pink Corydoras Catfish for sale in our facility. Click here for more about buying Cory Catfish from us. These are good scavengers for small aquariums.


These Catfish are called Armored Catfish because their bodies are covered with small hard plates to protect their bodies.
Click here to buy Corydoras Catfish.
Armored Catfish including the Corydoras species and the very similar Brochis species are all very wonderful aquarium fish. Cory Catfish are cute, energetic, just the right size for most aquariums, don't hide, and are always hungry, so they are constantly scavenging the gravel for bits of food.
But they're not a substitute for cleaning your aquarium and changing some of the water.
Click here for more about aquarium maintenance.
All Corydoras Catfish go to the surface of the water from time to time and swallow a bubble of air. They force this bubble of air down into their intestines, where they can absorb the oxygen.
Pet Fish Talk, an MP3 PodCast, is a weekly internet talk show about keeping pet fish, such as tropical fish and goldfish, in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds. The shows were hosted by the Bailey Brothers, DrTom and Nevin, Click on this image for more information.  
Click here to listen to Steve Corandan, a professional fish breeder and the owner of Corandan's Tropical Fish in Florence, NJ, talk about how to to breed Corydoras Catfish in an aquarium.
Corydoras Catfish enjoy schooling together. They can easily distinguish members of their species from other species of Corydoras Catfish. Long ago a friend of mine, named Pat, had a very large aquarium. It was about six feet long with over 100 gallons of water. There were three or four schools of Corydoras species.
Maybe ten to twenty Corys in each school.
Once in a while two schools would swim through each other, and none of the Corys would ever get confused and join the group with another species. It was fun to watch and kind of amazing.

An freshwater aquarium with an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4 inch of gravel, and an aquarium heater adjusted to between 78 and 82 degrees F. Click here for more about warm water aquariums.


Recommended Diet
Floating flake food for tropical fish. Hikari makes sinking food specifically for Catfish, but be careful and do not feed more than your fish can eat. Be sure your fish eat all the food you feed them, because uneaten food will soon spoil and pollute the aquarium water. Click here for more about feeding fish. I feed my Cory Catfish a few live Black Worms every other day. Click here for more about Black Worms.

Hikari Algae Wafers specifically developed for hard to feed Plecostomus Catfish. Click on this ad to learn more about Algae Wafers and other fish foods.

Armored Catfish enjoy being together so keep a group with at least six Cory Catfish of the same species together in the same aquarium. If you have a large aquarium, say 50 or more gallons of water, you can keep two different types of Corydoras Catfish and have fun watching each type keep its own school.
Armored Corydoras Catfish are good tank mates for Livebearers such as Mollies, Swordtails, and Platies, or for Fancy Guppies. Angelfish do well with Corydoras Catfish. Small Tetras such as Neon Tetras, or Bigger Tetras such as Black Skirt Tetras and Serpae Tetras also do well with Corydoras Catfish.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
