Corydoras comes from the Green world "Korus" meaning Helmet and "Dora" meaning skin. This is an reference to the rows of bony plates along the flanks of their bodies.

These very popular community fish are among the very prettiest of all the smaller catfish varieties. Coming from the black waters of the upper Amazon, Peru and Brazil, these Cory's are found in very large schools, with this in mind they are better kept in groupd of for or more for long term housing.

They are "air breathers" and possess a highliy modified intestine which has evolved to facilitate atmospheric oxygen, which will aid survival in oxygen depleted pools in their native lands dry season, therefore in the Aquarium they can occasionally be observed darting to the surface to take gulps of air.
