Native to: Brazil, South America, Upper Rio Guapore The Sterba’s Cory is a peaceful fish that enjoys dark, soft bottom aquariums. In addition, they prefer a limited amount of plants, and they like clear water with a bit of current.
An omnivorous fish, their diet includes dried; flaked; frozen and live foods, including pellet foods, frozen brine and live worms.
The breeding process entails the females carrying eggs with a special pouch, and leaving them attached to a leaf or a separate smooth surface. Less than a week later, the eggs will hatch. You can feed the young fish with micro-worms or micro-plankton until they’re ready for prepared foods.
