The Wotroi Cory, scientifically known as Corydoras wotroi, is a delightful and active freshwater fish species that adds a touch of charm and sociability to community aquariums. With its unique appearance and lively behavior, the Wotroi Cory is a true gem that will enhance the dynamics of your aquatic environment.


The Wotroi Cory showcases a striking and distinctive color pattern, featuring a pale body adorned with bold black markings that extend from the head to the tail. Their contrasting colors and their reputation as "armored" catfish, thanks to bony plates covering their bodies, make them a visually captivating addition to aquariums. These corydoras are known for their playful and social behavior, often seen exploring the substrate and engaging with other tankmates.


These fish are best kept in groups, and their schooling behavior is most evident when they are in the company of their own kind. They are peaceful by nature and can coexist with a variety of community fish species.


Caring for the Wotroi 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
