Place of Origin: Central America  
Natural Habitats: Corydoras are generally found in smaller-sized streams; along the margins of larger rivers; in marshes and ponds. They are native to slow-moving and almost still (but seldom stagnant) streams and small rivers of South America where the water is shallow and very clea  
Aggressiveness: Peaceful towards it's own species and Peaceful towards other species  
Social Behaviour: They are well suited to tropical freshwater community aquariums; as they get along well with other species and are not at all aggressive. Corys are shy fish but Peacful schooling fish; very social and does well in groups of four or more.  
Common Disease: They do not do well in fish tanks with high nitrate levels. This ion leads to the infection of the barbels; which will shorten and become useless. The barbels may also be affected by constant contact with a sharp substrate.  
Care: These fish are easy to keep; being peaceful; small; hardy; active; and entertaining. Occasionally they will dart to the surface; sticking their snout above the water for an instant to take a 'breath' of air. This behavior is perfectly normal and is not an indication that anything is wrong with the fish. If done in excess; this behavior may indicate poor water conditions.  
Comment: Use a sand or fine gravel for the substrate; this will protect their delicate barbels.
