Eques Cory - Horseman’s Cory 4-5cm
Size : 4-5 cm
The color of Corydoras eques partially depends on the substrate they live on. Their flanks can be fairly dark to a somewhat lighter turquois / blue. Just behind the eye across their gill plate they have an orange vertical band. You can find this orange also on top of their back and at the edges of their caudal fin. Sometimes they show a dark band that starts at the top of their head and runs to the back to the base of their caudal fin. Their belly is whitish.
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.
