The Green Corydorus is a bottom dweller. This means the mainly stay at the bottom of the tank on the substrate. These impressive fish forge the bottom of the tank looking for food. This is how they are known as part of the clean up crew.  They can be very shy fish, so hiding spots such as caves or live fish tank plants will be a requirement for these fish. Fully grown the average length of an Emerald Green Cory Cat is about 3 inches long. However, a larger female may grow up to about 3.5 inches in length.

They are very easy to feed as they will readily take to a wide variety of commercial fish foods, algae and even decaying plant material. Some good food choices are freeze-dried bloodworms, black worms, sinking pellets, shrimp pellets, flake food, brine shrimp and frozen and live foods designed for freshwater tropical fish.
