Goldline Cory 3-4cm
Size : 3-4cm
The Goldline Cory (Corydoras sp. CW010), also known as the Gold Laser Cory Catfish, is a relatively newfound species that is native to Peru. It is rare in the aquarium hobby, but is in high demand due to its coloration of a metallic green body with a thick neon yellow stripe along its shoulder and side. It is a very animated, distinctively marked schooling fish that is perfect for the nano, community, and planted aquarium.
The Gold Stripe Cory Catfish is a very peaceful schooling fish that is compatible with most nano aquarium animals, including dwarf cichlids and angelfish. It might prey on some smaller dwarf shrimp, but is safe with larger shrimp and most other peaceful ornamental invertebrates. It is a classic scavenger and will inhabit and feed at the aquarium floor, which should be comprised of sand or smooth gravel. Very coarse substrate can damage its delicate barbels and underbelly. This fish is otherwise undemanding as it will accept most dry and frozen foods. It is adaptable to most tropical freshwater conditions as long as standard regular maintenance is performed and sudden changes are avoided.
