Corydoras Sychri (Mega Fairy)

Description

The Fairy Spotted Cory, Corydoras atropersonatus, is a specific type of catfish and belongs to the Corydoras genus within the family Callichthyidae. They are commonly referred to as "Corydoras" or "Cory Cats."

1. Temperature: Fairy Spotted Corydoras prefer water temperatures ranging from 72°F to 78°F (22°C to 26°C).

2. Minimum Tank Size: To provide a suitable environment for a small group of Fairy Spotted Corydoras, a tank size of at least 20 gallons is recommended.

Feeding Habits: Fairy Spotted Corydoras are omnivorous and will accept a variety of foods. They enjoy a diet that includes high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, frozen or live foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and also some vegetable matter like blanched vegetables.

Habitat Preference: Fairy Spotted Corydoras are native to South America, specifically found in the Rio Tapajós and Rio Xingu in Brazil. They are typically found in slow-moving, clear waters with sandy or gravel substrates and plenty of submerged vegetation.

Water pH Level: They prefer slightly acidic to neutral water conditions. The pH level should be maintained between 6.0 and 7.0.

Behavior: Fairy Spotted Corydoras are peaceful and social fish. They are known for their playful and active behavior. They will often swim along the bottom of the tank, exploring their environment.

Schooling: Corydoras, including the Fairy Spotted Cory, are shoaling fish, which means they prefer to be kept in groups of their own kind. Keeping them in groups of at least six or more individuals is recommended, as they feel more secure and exhibit their natural behaviors when in a group.

Bottom Dweller: Fairy Spotted Corydoras are not solitary; they thrive in groups. They are not strictly nocturnal but can be active during both day and night. They are primarily bottom-dwelling fish, often scavenging for food on the substrate.

Color and Other Details: The Fairy Spotted Cory has a relatively elongated body, and its coloration includes a silver or bronze base with dark spots or reticulated patterns. The specific patterns and coloration may vary slightly among individuals. They have distinctive long dorsal and pectoral fin spines, which add to their overall appearance. These fish are known for their striking and unique appearance, making them a popular choice among aquarium enthusiasts.
