Corydoras Leopard 3cm


Corydoras leopardus, the leopard cory, is a catfish very similar to, and often confused with, the three line cory, Corydoras trilineatus. The most obvious differences are that C. leopardus has a longer, more pointed snout than C. trilineatus, and C. leopardus grows larger than C. trilineatus. 

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.
