benthic organisms and plant matter. Original scavengers.
Coarse gravel or lava and relevant jagged substrata are completely
inadequate to keep the species. You need fine quartz gravel or sand
to keep their barbells unharmed. They use to swim all over the water
column in relatively shallow tanks.
They spawn the same way as other Corydoras species. The
females are more rounded and heavier than males. Live and frozen
foods are essential if one desires to breed the species.
