The albino cory cat is an amazing addition to any south american aquarium. The cory cats like to school in a group of six or more. These cat fish come from the amazon river and tributaries. water temperature should be in the mid to high 70's. The most important feature of a cory cat are its barbs or whiskers. They use their barbs to shift through the substrate to find uneaten food. Because their barbs are fragile it is well advised to use sand that won't change the ph for the bottom that way these fish do no scratch their bellies or damage their whiskers. To breed the cory cat you want to do a water change about 20-25% with slightly colder water just by a few degrees. This mimics the rains in south america and it triggers the cory cats to spawn. every now and then you will see the little cory cats come up to the surface to gulp air.

Kyra's Albino Cory Catfish The Albino Cory Catfish fry are a little over a week old. From this spawn I was able to collect around 30 eggs. Adult Cories are a mixture of ages.

Adults eat Flakes, Bloodworms, Daphnia, Brine Shrimp and Algae Wafers(occasionally). I also have Peppered Cory Catfish that are younger than my Albinos, one makes and appearance in the video.

Possibly, but in our research so far we have found they are believed to be derived from Corydoras paleatus. Two of the references cited on the bottom of this page suggest this; Dr. Herbert R. Axelrod in his book 'Aquarium Fishes of the World' shows the albino form of C. paleatus (page 430); and also author Richard Geis, in his book 'Catfish Keeping & Breeding Them in Captivity,' also suggests in the caption of his albino photo, this color form being C. paleatus (page 54). However if you can share a resource suggesting they are C. aeneus , we would love to review it.
