Friendly and restful fish which lives near the bottom of the aquarium.
The behaviour of this Corydoras species is much simulair of the behaviour of C. melanistius.
Although I don't think this fish is sensible for diseases, I still lost two out of three of these fishes pretty fast through a for me unknown disease, which seemed to affect only the Corydoras species in my aquarium. A short medicine cure in the aquarium didn't helped. Therefore I placed the four remaining Corydoras fishes (of three species) in a quarantine aquarium and gave them a five days cure of a combination of eSHa 2000 and Exit (see also the medicines page), followed by the use of a vitamin preparation. After about one month I placed all the corydoras species back to the main aquarium. At this time (a few weeks later) they haven't given any problems yet.
