The Red Cory, scientifically known as Corydoras sp. "Red," is a captivating and highly sought-after freshwater fish species that adds a burst of vibrant color and charm to community aquariums. With its striking red or orange coloration and peaceful demeanor, the Red Cory is a true gem that will enhance the visual appeal and tranquility of your aquatic habitat.


The Red Cory showcases a unique and vibrant color pattern, featuring a bright red or orange body that immediately catches the eye. Their colorful appearance, coupled with their endearing behavior, creates a visually captivating and dynamic display in planted or community aquariums. These corydoras are known for their peaceful and social nature, often seen foraging along the substrate in groups.


These fish thrive when kept in groups, and their schooling behavior is most evident when they are in the company of their own kind. They are generally peaceful and make excellent tankmates for a variety of community fish species.


Caring for the Red Cory involves creating a stable environment with appropriate water parameters. They thrive in freshwater with specific requirements, including stable temperature, pH, and water hardness levels. A well-planted aquarium with a soft substrate (sand or fine gravel) will provide them with the ideal habitat. Their diet should consist of high-quality sinking pellets, frozen or live foods, and occasional vegetable matter.


Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: 72-78°F (22-26°C)
  • pH: 6.0-7.5
  • Water Hardness (GH): 2-15 dGH
