Feeding Habits: Corydoras robineae is omnivorous. They accept a varied diet, including high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, and live or frozen foods like bloodworms and brine shrimp. A mix of protein and vegetable-based foods is recommended.
Habitat Preference: Corydoras robineae originates from South America and is often found in slow-moving waters, including tributaries and floodplains. Provide a well-decorated aquarium with soft sand or fine gravel substrate, as they enjoy foraging in the substrate for food.
