    Common Name(s): Skunk Cory, Arched Cory

    Scientific Name: Corydoras arcuatus

    Family: Callichthyidae

    Adult Size: 2 inches (5 cm)

    Origin: South America

    Social: Peaceful

    Lifespan: 5-8 years

    Tank Level: Bottom dweller

    Minimum Tank Size: 15 gallon (IMO)

    Diet: Omnivore, eats most foods

    Breeding: Egglayer

    Care: Easy to Intermediate

    Sexing: Easiest when viewed from above as with most cories, The female has a more fuller wider body behind the pectoral fins.

    Notes: A healthy skunk cory will have shine over its golden brown body, Due to the similar marking to the bandit cory, I've found that these two shoal together readily. They are not as readily as available as bronze cories or the more common types of cories. They tend to be a little more delicate than other types of cory so be sure to keep up with tank maintenance.
