Corydoras sp. CW045 (False Armatus)

Description

Corydoras sp. CW045, commonly known as False Armatus, is a type of Corydoras catfish. It belongs to the family Callichthyidae, which includes various freshwater fish species commonly found in South America. The False Armatus is a popular choice for community aquariums due to its peaceful nature and interesting behaviors.

Here are the specific details regarding the False Armatus Corydoras:

  1. Temperature: They prefer a temperature range of 72-79°F (22-26°C), which is typical for many tropical freshwater aquarium fish.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: To keep a small group of False Armatus Corydoras, it is recommended to have a tank with a capacity of at least 20 gallons (75 liters). Providing a larger tank allows for more space for these fish to explore and reduces territorial disputes.

Feeding Habits: False Armatus Corydoras are omnivores and will readily accept a varied diet. They primarily feed on small crustaceans, worms, plant matter, and commercial sinking pellets or wafers in the aquarium environment.

Habitat Preference: In their natural habitat, False Armatus Corydoras inhabit slow-moving, shallow waters such as small streams and tributaries with sandy or muddy substrates. They often reside among aquatic vegetation and submerged roots.

Water pH Level: They thrive in slightly acidic to neutral water conditions with a pH range of 6.0-7.5. Maintaining stable water parameters is crucial for their overall health and well-being.

Behavior: False Armatus Corydoras are peaceful and social fish that tend to stay close to the bottom of the aquarium. They are known for their playful and active behavior, constantly scavenging for food and sifting through the substrate.
Armatus Corydoras are shoaling fish, which means they prefer living in groups of their own species or with other peaceful bottom-dwelling fish. Keeping them in groups of at least six individuals can help them feel more secure and exhibit natural shoaling behaviors.

Color and Other Details: False Armatus Corydoras typically have a light brown or tan body coloration with darker patches and markings. They may have a pattern of spots and a streamlined, armored appearance common to Corydoras catfish. They are known for their unique facial features, including their barbels, which they use to navigate and search for food along the substrate.
