Overview

The Elegans Cory Cat, also known as the Elegant Cory, comes from the tributaries of larger river systems in Central and South America, and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. The Elegans is silver to gold with a main black stripe running horizontally from the back of the head to the tail.

The Elegans 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.

Breeding the Elegans Cory Cat is accomplished by providing a number of the same species in the aquarium and allowing them to pair off. The eggs of this species are fertilized after they have been deposited and will become waterborne in approximately five days. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp or crushed flake food.

The Elegans Cory Cat is omnivorous and 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/2"

Customer Testimonials

Patrick Miller Kent , NY
This cat fish is a great community fish. I've found that this cat fish can also live with fish as aggressive as a tiger oscar. I like to call these cat fish my little janitors; they do a great job of keeping the bottom of the tank clean and a nice polished look on the gravel.
