Adolfo's Cory Cat

Corydoras adolfoi
The Adolfoi Cory Cat requires a well planted aquarium with plenty of hiding places, like driftwood, that provides relief from the light. A smooth sand or gravel substrate is needed because of the easily damaged barbels. They enjoy being in numbers, so a small shoal of six or more is ideal for these cats.
Adolfoi comes from South America and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger.
This fish is omnivorous and will require a well balanced diet including dried, flake, frozen, and live foods. Feed a quality flake and pellet food as well as frozen brine shrimp and live worms.
The water should be soft and acidic pH 6,5, temp. around 26'C.
Adolfo grows up to 6 cm and lives up to 5 years. They should be kept with peaceful species like Discus, Tetras, Gouramies, Platies, Angels etc.
