Agassizii Cory (Corydoras agassizii)


An attractively marked and larger-growing Corydoras from the middle Amazon in Colombia, Peru, and Brazil, the Agassizii or Spotted Cory is a peaceful shoaling fish often found in  large groups in the wild. In the aquarium they are hardy and undemanding, an excellent and active bottom-dweller for most community tanks. Like most Corydoras they should be kept in groups of at least five fish.
