overviewThe Palespotted Cory Cat adds personality and interest to the lowest regions of your aquarium. With its pleasing pattern of mottled brown dots and stripes upon a gold-orange body, the Palespotted Cory Cat is a visually striking and entertaining addition to the freshwater aquarium. The Palespotted Cory Cat comes from the tributaries of larger river systems in South America.
The Palespotted Cory Cat requires a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding places that provide relief from the light. A smooth sand or gravel substrate is needed because of the easily damaged barbels. They enjoy being in numbers, so a small school of six or more is ideal for these cats. A school of Palespotted Cory Cats is sure to treat you to an energetic feeding frenzy during feeding.
Breeding the Palespotted Cory Cat is generally achieved by keeping a number of these cats together and allowing them to pair off. After spawning, the breeding pair should be separated from the eggs, or the eggs transferred to another system. The fry become waterborne in approximately five days, at which time, they should be fed baby brine shrimp and crushed flake food.
The Palespotted Cory Cat is omnivorous and will require a well-balanced diet including freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, sinking catfish pellets, flake food, frozen and live foods. Feed a quality flake and pellet food as well as frozen brine shrimp and live worms.
