Ideal Bronze Corydoras Conditions

This is one of the most peaceful scavengers that you can put into your aquarium. They will fit well into a community tank as well as in most species tanks, stays on the tank floor but will occasionally go up higher in the aquarium.

They also have the typical Cory behavior. Will lie still for a while, roll its eyes back from time to time and then rush of and scavenge on the tank floor before coming to rest again.

A wonderful little fish to keep your tank floor clean with. They do appreciate some hiding place in the form of plants or ornaments. They also do better when in groups of four or more.
