The Habrosus Cory, also known as Corydoras habrosus, is a peaceful and fascinating freshwater fish species that originates from South America. They are a popular choice for aquarists due to their unique characteristics and ease of care.


Habrosus Corys are small, with a maximum size of 1 inch, and require a minimum tank size of 10 gallons. They are active bottom dwellers and appreciate plenty of hiding places, live plants, and soft substrate. They are also peaceful and can be kept with other small, peaceful species.


These omnivores will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, and small pieces of vegetables. It's important to provide a balanced diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for optimal health.


The Habrosus Cory's unique characteristic is their cute appearance, with their round body and tiny size. They are also known for their playful and active behavior, often seen darting around the bottom of the tank and playing with each other.
