Overview

The Adolfoi Cory Cat comes from the tributaries of the Rio Negro and Rio Uaupes in South America and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. The Adolfoi is mostly pale in color and has one black stripe covering the back and another across the eyes.

The Adolfoi 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 Adolfoi Cory Cat is accomplished by providing a number of the same species in the aquarium and allowing them to pair off. Success in breeding the Adolfoi has been attained with a low water level and a dH lower than 6. Feed the fry a variety of mashed dried foods as well as baby brine shrimp.

The Adolfoi 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

John Pavela Corona , CA
I have bought these beautiful Cory cats on two occasions from Live Aquaria and now now have a school of six of them. All arrived in great shape and easily acclimated to my 90 gallon tank. After one year all are still doing wonderfully.
