Corydoras Sodalis

Description

Corydoras sodalis, commonly known as the False Bandit Cory, is a charming and peaceful freshwater catfish species that belongs to the Corydoradinae subfamily within the Callichthyidae family. These catfish are popular among aquarium enthusiasts for their sociable nature and distinctive appearance.

  1. Temperature: Maintain a water temperature between 72°F to 78°F (22°C to 26°C) to ensure the well-being of Corydoras sodalis.

  2. Minimum Size Tank: Provide a tank with a minimum size of 20 gallons. Ensure the aquarium has a soft substrate to protect the delicate barbels on their mouths and plenty of hiding spots.

Feeding Habits: Corydoras sodalis is an omnivorous species. Offer a balanced diet that includes high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, and occasional treats of live or frozen foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, or daphnia.

Habitat Preference: These catfish appreciate a well-decorated aquarium with soft sand substrate, plants, and driftwood. They thrive in an environment with plenty of hiding spots and subdued lighting.

Water pH Level: Maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level between 6.0 and 7.5.

Behavior: Corydoras sodalis is known for its peaceful and sociable behavior. They are shoaling fish and should be kept in groups of at least six individuals to ensure their well-being. They are active during the day and are fascinating to watch as they explore the aquarium.

Corydoras sodalis is a bottom-dwelling species. They spend a significant amount of time foraging for food in the substrate, making them efficient scavengers.

Color: The False Bandit Cory is characterized by its distinct coloration, including a light body with dark markings resembling a mask over their eyes, similar to the appearance of a Bandit Corydoras.

Corydoras sodalis is a shoaling species, and they thrive when kept in groups. Keeping them in a school helps reduce stress and encourages natural behaviors.

Adding Corydoras sodalis to your aquarium not only introduces a touch of activity but also contributes to the overall health of the tank by keeping the substrate clean. Ensure proper care, a well-maintained environment, and a balanced diet to promote the health and vibrancy of these charming catfish.
