Tank-bred specimens of this rare cory catfish are not often available, and we are proud to offer the REAL deal!
Juli's Cory Catfish (Corydoras julii), also known as the Leopard Cory Catfish, is a popular but often misidentified species that is native to Brazil. Tank-bred specimens are rare in the aquarium hobby, but are in high demand due to their spotted markings and peaceful nature. This species is a very animated, distinctively marked schooling fish that is perfect for the nano, community, and planted aquarium.
Juli's Cory Catfish is a very peaceful schooling fish that is compatible with most nano aquarium animals, including dwarf cichlids and angelfish. It might prey on some smaller dwarf shrimp, but is safe with larger shrimp and most other peaceful ornamental invertebrates. It is a classic scavenger and will inhabit and feed at the aquarium floor, which should be comprised of sand or smooth gravel. Very coarse substrate can damage its delicate barbels and underbelly, so it should be kept in an aquarium with sand or very smooth gravel substrate. This fish is otherwise undemanding as it will accept most dry,frozen, and live foods. It is adaptable to most tropical freshwater conditions as long as standard regular maintenance is performed and sudden changes are avoided. While it is a scavenger, care must be taken to ensure that it receives a good variety of high quality foods and is not simply expected to eat leftover food that other fish do not eat.
