Axelrod Cory

Sold out

Pink corydoras (Corydoras axelrodi) are best kept in a shoal of at least 6 of the same species. More are better. This species is suitable for community aquariums. Should never be kept with fish large enough to try to eat them as that can mean then end for both the cory and the fish trying to eat it.

A varied diet is important for optimal health. Include meaty foods when possible, either live or frozen. Shrimp, worms, insects, and any crustaceans are good choices. They seem to be particularly fond of bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia.

  • pH:  6.0 - 7.6
  • Diet:  Omnivorous.  High-quality flake, pellet and wafer foods as well as frozen foods such as bloodworms and tubifex.
  • Temperature : 23° - 26° C
