Albino Corydoras
Description

Details

A very popular and hardy catfish for the community aquarium. Albino strains of both the Bronze Catfish and Pepper Corydoras have been developed in the aquarium hobby. Grows to about 6-7cm.

Catfish (order Siluriformes) are a diverse group of fish. Named for their prominent barbels, which give the image of cat-like whiskers, they are found primarily in freshwater environments of all kinds, with species on every continent except Antarctica.

Catfish have no scales. All catfish, except members of Malapteruridae (electric catfish), possess a strong, hollow, bonified leading ray on their dorsal and pectoral fins, through which a stinging protein can be delivered if the fish is irritated.

Catfish are often described as being nocturnal creatures; in other words they are most active at nighttime. In general terms catfish prefer to dwell at the bottom of an aquarium (or at the bottom of rivers, lakes, streams and creeks etc in their natural environments). There are of course exceptions to this general rule, as some species of catfish occupy the mid to surface water areas of an aquarium, such as the Glass Catfishes and the Upside-down Catfish.

Providing hiding places for them is of utmost importance. With careful planning of your aquarium layout you can not only provide your catfish with hiding places, but you will actually have the benefit of seeing them as well. Suitable materials to use for hiding places include wood, rocks, slate, clean plastic pipe and aquatic plants.

Catfish generally are excellent tankmates for a wide variety of other species of fish.

Corydoras Dipped In Glitter
I have had my 4 Albinos for a while now and I am quite pleased with them awesome bottom cleaners and quite pretty in my eyes for their intriguing sparkle that is allover their armor when caught in the right light.
Also can do odd things at times saw one doing a barrel roll on the ground to stir up potential food which may of been lying their,very cool

Great community additions
They got in the tank and instantly made friends with my lonely one cory and then they all went to work! Wonderful little cleaners and my original guy is quite enamored with them.
All arrived happy, they just wanted out of the bags!

These are a must for every freshwater tank
You cannot get any better than these hard working little fish. They never stop. I purchased five more last week. I think I know have around 20 in my tank. They are so cute when they all line up side by side and have a siesta of an afternoon.

Doesn't stop
I love these fish after having them before, they never stop and are always tearing around the tank like its a race track with so much energy. Very entertaining and get on well with the rest of the fish.
