The Corydoras species is perfect for the community aquarium as a bottom dweller and as such will be compatible with other community fish such as tetras. It is a very peaceful fish and so care should be taken not to introduce aggressive fish with it but will generally keep itself to itself and spend it’s whole time scavenging the bottom of the tank.

Additional info

The Corydoras catfish are very popular now in the aquarium trade for community aquariums which we believe is down to their favourable size and the personality they posses of a fish which is active and seems to always have something to be doing!
