Overview

The Nanus Cory Cat, sometimes referred to as the Mini Cory, comes from the tributaries of larger river systems in Central and South America, and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. The Nanus is gold with a series of black stripes running horizontally from the back of the head to the tail.

The Nanus 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 Nanus Cory Cat has not been documented, but it is suggested that their requirements are similar to the Elegans Cory Cat.

The Nanus 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 shrimp and live worms.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1"
