The peaceful, omnivore, Elegans Cory Cat is also known as the Elegant Cory is a peaceful bottom-dwelling scavenger. The Elegans is silver to gold with a main black stripe running horizontally from the back of the head to the tail. The Elegans Cory Cat requires a well-planted aquarium w/ plenty of hiding places that provide relief from the light such as nice rock forations and wood. A smooth sand or gravel substrate is best because of the easily damaged barbels.

Elegant Corys like being in numbers, so a small school of at least six or more is ideal for these cats. Breeding the Elegant Cory Cat is done by offering a number of the same species in the aquarium and allowing them to pair off. The eggs of this species are fertilized after they have been laid and will become waterborne in approximately five days. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp or crushed flake food.  The Elegans Cory Cat is omnivorous and will require a well balanced diet including dried, flake, frozen, and live foods. Feed a quality flake or pellet food as well as frozen brine and bloodworms.
