Sterbai Cory Cat

Sterbai Cory

Sterbai Cory Catfish (Corydoras sterbai) is among the most popular of the numerous known species within the Corydoras genus, and this is because of its stunning markings.  Its head features white dots on a black background, which is a very unique characteristic for corydoras, as most of them have these colors reversed.  The body is speckled with both black and white dots that provide absolutely stunning contrast, especially with its orange pectoral fins. Much like its cousin, the Peppered Cory (Corydoras paleatus), this catfish exhibits very interesting and often playful behavior. It is fairly small (they grow to a maximum of about 2-1/2 inches), so it is ideal for the home aquarium and likes to be in groups of 6 or more.

Environment for Sterbai Cory

Native to the Upper Rio Guapore, the Sterbai Cory is a peaceful fish that enjoys dark, soft bottom aquariums with smooth rocks or sand. They prefer water temperatures from 73f to 80f 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.

Feeding Sterbai Cory

Corydoras are omnivorous and will eat a variety of foods. Good Quality sinking food like Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food or Northfin Kelp wafers is a great choice. Most high-quality sinking food will be fine. They will also eat fresh vegetables like cucumber or zucchini. Take a look at other Corys for sale at Michaels Fish Room here. Corydoras do best in a group of 6 or more. They are great for the community fish tank as they are peaceful and will help keep the bottom clean. They do well with livebearers, plecos, tetras, and most other peaceful fish.
