Peppered Cory (Corydoras paleatus) – Group of 5 Fish


One of the most commonly kept species of Corydoras in the hobby, the Peppered or Paleatus Cory originates from watersheds in Southern South Amercia but has been captive bred on a huge scale for decades and wild specimens are almost never imported. Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. This species is an excellent community aquarium fish and will do well with nearly any non-aggressive tankmates.
