Water Conditions

So-named because of its striking black arched markings, the Skunk Corydoras is a firm favourite with many. Ideally suited to mature softwater aquaria, this sociable species should be kept in groups of 5 or more. Unfortunately, this species is very prone to barbel infections/erosion, so it is of paramount importance that the fish are kept on a soft sand substrate (rather than gravel where waste can build up unseen) in order to protect these delicate sensory organs. Regular maintenance, including frequent partial water changes, should be carried out in order to keep these fish in good condition. The aquarium itself should be aquascaped with ample shady hiding spots underneath pieces of bogwood and plants. Large shoals of small midwater ‘dither fish’ will encourage your Skunk Cories out into view more often. Other peaceful species such as some of the smaller fish from the pencilfish, tetra, and rasbora families make ideal tankmates. Corydoras have the ability to breathe air intestinally, so a small gap should be left between the surface of the water and the cover slides in order for the fish to come up to the surface and take air in. It may do this numerous times per day. This species has been misidentified as arcuatus for the last sixty years - it may be some time before exporters and labels catch up.
