Scientific Name: Corydoras paleatus

Water Parameters: The Paleatus Corydoras prefers a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5, a water temperature of 72-78°F (22-25°C), and moderate hardness (4-12 dKH). They are hardy fish that can adapt to a wide range of water conditions, but prefer clean and well-oxygenated water. They also appreciate a substrate of fine sand or smooth gravel, as they like to sift through it in search of food.

Location: The Paleatus Corydoras is native to South America, where it can be found in the Paraná River basin, in Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. They inhabit slow-moving rivers, streams, and flooded areas with soft substrate and plenty of vegetation.

Interesting Facts: The Paleatus Corydoras is a popular freshwater aquarium fish due to its striking appearance and peaceful nature. They are known for their distinct black and silver patterning, with a black patch on their dorsal fin that resembles a saddle. They are also known for their playful and curious behavior, often seen swimming in groups and exploring their environment. In the wild, they are omnivores and feed on small insects, crustaceans, and organic debris. In captivity, they will accept a variety of commercial foods, but also appreciate live or frozen food such as bloodworms or brine shrimp. Paleatus Corydoras are social fish that do best in groups of 6 or more individuals, and make a great addition to any community aquarium.
