The Green Aeneus Cory Catfish is green with silver complementary colors and distinctive barbels at the front of their short and rounded heads, with which they filter sand and gravel. A hardworking little fish, they are bottom dwellers that help keep your tank clean with their scavenging nature.
The Green Aeneus Cory Catfish is a great option for a community tank due to its peaceful nature. A smaller fish that grows to only two and one-half inches at maturity, they are at home in tank sizes of at least 30 gallons. Because they are hardy, Green Aeneus Cory Catfish are a great option for both beginners and advanced enthusiasts.
The Green Aeneus Cory Catfish 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 catfish.
An omnivore, the Green Aeneus Cory Catfish will require a well-balanced diet including dried, flake, frozen, and live foods. Feed a quality flake and pellet food as well as frozen brine and live worms.
