Leucomelas Cory (Corydoras leucomelas) – Group of 5 Fish


A colorful and widespread Cory Cat found throughout much of the Amazon, C. leucomelas is a peaceful shoaling fish often found in very 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.

Please note that most Corydoras species are sold in groups of 5 or more due to their social nature. If you’re interested in purchasing an odd number group or individual specimens please email us for more info.
