Common Name/s: None

Scientific Name: Corydoras leucomelas

Origin: Yarinacocha, cutoff lake at right bank of Rio Pacaya, Loreto,Peru (From planetcatfish)

Maximum Size: 2”
Temperature: 25 - 30 C
PH: 5.6 - 7
Feeding: Flake food, sinking wafers, and most Live/Frozen. I’ve found Bloodworms, Brine Shrimp to be some of their favorites and, what fish wouldn't turn their nose away from them.

Sexing: As with most cory's the female of a species grows a little fuller and longer in the body than males.( to be updated as soon as I have more info )
Breeding: The same as with most cory's.( to be updated as soon as I have more info )

Comments: From what I have noticed from mine they are very peaceful fish and, full of caricature. Well suited for a community tank.

Sorry Fishadict,

But the picture you have shown is of a C. schwartzi.The black in C.lucomelas is intence and the dorsal/body blotch is diamond shapped and is dispersed fairly evenly on the body and dorsal fin.
