Comments
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.

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.

Compatibility
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.
