Origin: South America
Behavior: Peaceful, community tropical fish. Will hover along the bottom of the tank to search for food scraps.
Temperature: 68–82 °F (20-28 °C)
pH: 6.0 – 8.0
Size: 3″ (7 cm)
Diet: Accepts all types of food including flakes, sinking pellets, frozen and freeze-dried foods.
Breeding: Easy to breed. Place a group of 6+ Bronze Corys in the same tank. This will ensure that both sexes will be present in the group. Lower the pH to around 6.5-6.8, and do a 50% water change. Pour in the new water (de-chlorinated, of course) slowly to simulate the rains found in the Bronze Cory’s natural habitat. Lower the temperature by 3-5°C. This should encourage the Bronze Corys to spawn.
Sex: Females appear larger than males.
