The Albino Aeneus Cory Cat comes from the tributaries of the Amazon river and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. The Albino variety is mostly white to pink, and has multiple barbels around the mouth.

The Aeneus 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 Aeneus Cory Cat is relatively easy if kept in a large enough school to allow the cats to pair off. The water needs to be slightly acidic, and within the ideal temperature range. Sudden decrease in temperature has been shown to spark the Aeneus to spawn. This can be induced by a 20% water change with the added water being a few degrees cooler than the aquarium water. Remove all fry after they have become waterborne and feed with baby brine shrimp.

The Aeneus 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 1-1/4"

Customer Testimonials

Rosemary W Jasper , IN
My Albino Cory is a peaceful, energetic, little fish and I admire his determination and resolve. My little guy lost both of his eyes and recovered. He now lives a normal, energetic life, even in total darkness. He enjoys the company of other fish and responds to the sound of my voice when I talk to him. I would recommend these little cats to anyone.
