Green Gold Cory (Corydoras melanotaenia) – Group of 5 Fish


A popular and brilliantly colored species of Corydoras found throughout much the Meta and Orinoco basins in Colombia and Venezuela, the Green Gold Cory has been popular in the aquarium hobby for many years . Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups of at least 5 due to their schooling nature. This species is a medium-growing Corydoras and will do well with nearly any non-aggressive tankmates. They should be offered plenty of open swimming space and a fine sand substrate in the aquarium.
