Environment for Green Cory

It is native to the upper reaches Amazon Basin. This includes the Ucayali River to Pucallpa, Ambiyacu River, and the area around Iquitos in western Brazil, southeastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador, and eastern Peru. They prefer water temperature from 70f to 82f and a PH from 6.0 to 7.4. They would do well in a well-filtered 10 gallon, but a 20 gallon or larger is preferred. These fish have sensitive barbells or whiskers and one should have the proper substrate for them. To keep their barbels (whiskers) in the best condition, fine sand or smooth gravel should be used as the substrate.
