Corydoras virginiae "Miguelito Cory"

Description

Corydoras virginiae, commonly known as the "Miguelito Cory," is a type of catfish belonging to the Corydoras genus. Here are some details about this fish:

1. Temperature: Corydoras virginiae typically thrives in water temperatures between 72°F to 79°F (22°C to 26°C).

2. Minimum Tank Size: A minimum tank size of 20 gallons (75 liters) is recommended for keeping Corydoras virginiae comfortably.

Feeding Habits: Corydoras virginiae is an omnivorous fish. They will accept a variety of foods, including high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, live or frozen foods (such as bloodworms and brine shrimp), and vegetable matter. Ensure a balanced diet to keep them healthy.

Habitat Preference: These fish are native to South America and are found in the upper Rio Orinoco basin in Venezuela. They prefer slow-moving waters with sandy or soft substrates, and they often inhabit areas with vegetation and driftwood.

Water pH Level: Corydoras virginiae prefer slightly acidic to neutral water conditions with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5.

Behavior: Corydoras virginiae is generally peaceful and suitable for community aquariums. They are bottom-dwelling fish that spend most of their time foraging on the substrate. They are social and should be kept in groups of at least six individuals to prevent stress and promote their well-being.

Schooling: Corydoras virginiae, like other Corydoras species, are shoaling fish. They feel more secure and display more natural behaviors when kept in groups. They will often swim together in a group, especially when exploring the substrate for food.

Bottom Dweller: While Corydoras virginiae are primarily bottom-dwellers, they are not strictly nocturnal. They are more active during the day but may also be active during the early morning and evening.

Color and Other Details: The Corydoras virginiae "Miguelito Cory" typically has a beige to light brown body with darker markings on the head and fins. They have a distinctive pattern of dark spots and stripes, giving them a unique appearance.

As with any fish species, it's essential to provide a well-maintained aquarium with suitable water quality, substrate, and decor to mimic their natural habitat. Also, ensure proper tank mates that won't harass or outcompete them for food, as well as a peaceful and compatible community of fish.
