A cory catfish is considered a great choice if you seek for good fish. They are small and not aggressive like rainbow shark fish. These freshwater fish are also quite flexible. This is why the maintenance of cory catfish is pretty easy. For starters, let’s get to know these fish more.

About Cory Catfish
If you love peaceful, friendly pets, cory catfish is the choice. They are social creatures, so there is no problem putting them in the same aquarium. They tend to swim around together in threes at least. They do not mind being alone, but tend to get really shy.
Cory catfish is short for ‘Corydoras’ catfish. With their hard, armoured exterior, it is no surprise that Corydoras is a Greek word that means: helmet (kory) and skin (doras). They love eating insects, quatic organisms, larvae, and worms.

The Aquarium Maintenance:
So, how to do a proper maintenance of cory catfish? To be on the safe side, here is the standard:
Aquarium pH: 7.0 – 7.8 pH
Temperature: 72 – 78 F
Lighting: Standard community tank lighting
Cory catfish are known to be bottom-dwellers. Make sure the aquarium gravel is 2 inches from the tank bottom. These fishes also love plants and lots of hiding places where they can rest.

Which Fish Should Be With Cory Catfish?
Basically, cory catfish are such friendly creatures, so it is easy to find tankmates for them. The only dealbreaker is if the tankmates are the aggressive kind. For example: rainbow shark fish. It is best that you never put them together in the same aquarium. The cory catfish will be in danger, because that other fish is territorial.
With other fish, cory catfish might get along well. For example: filter-feeding shrimp, freshwater snails, pond snails, and plenty other types of shrimp.
This is how you do the maintenance of cory catfish. Feed them regularly but not too much. Make sure they have plenty of moving space, especially since they are social creatures. Last but not least, never put them with rainbow shark fish.
