Corridonas is also known as Corrie Catfish. They are freshwater fish and are popular with aquarium enthusiasts around the world. This fish is particularly attractive because they are very social and prefer to be kept in six or seven of their own species, as well as other fish species. These types of fish are called School.
If you have a tank full of Corridora, you’re lucky! You will be able to introduce other similar sex fish into the aquarium without getting any trouble from your Cory Catfish. In fact, if you have four-sided fish or other similar colored fish in the tank, the little fish will play with them.
Another benefit of keeping a school of Cory fish in your aquarium is that they will help keep your water tank clean. Corridonas is the bottom feeder. This means they spend most of their time at the bottom of the tank, looking for leftovers and other debris to gnaw. In general, the bottom feeder is a tank companion for messy fish, making life easier when cleaning the tank.
Cory Donas is the scientific name for Corrie catfish. In this article, we’ll refer to them by two names, so don’t be confused. Most fish have scientific names and “street” names, in which case scientific names and street names are common.
Corridonas interesting facts
- Female corsets are a little larger than men’s. They can grow up to 3 inches long, while males can reach about 2.5 inches.
- Adult Cory fish have no teeth. You may notice tooth-like ridges on larvae and larvae. They soon lost the teeth of these babies and remained as gummy adults.
- Corey catfish can live for up to 5 years. Only by keeping them happy and healthy will they reach this age. Don’t forget that the happiness of your fish is as important as their health.
- Coridoas can’t get pregnant They’re spawning fish, so they don’t produce live larvae.
- Corridonas is not fussy about food, and they eat both plants and meat.
- Did you know corey catfish can breathe out of the water? They have a special maze organ, which is vital for land breathing. Don’t leave your corset in the water for a long time, as it will make them very distressed.
- They like to eat, but make sure their meal sinks to the bottom of the water tank. Corey catfish is a little lazy, preferring their food to give them.
- There are about 7 kinds of Corridor, each with its own unique pattern and color.
- Coridoran likes to eat zucchini and pumpkins from time to time.
Where did Coridore find it in the wild?
You won’t find these fish in the sea, but in ponds, streams, rivers, and swamps. They prefer slow-moving water. Cory catfish is native to South America. For Corridoloa, the most important thing is to be in shallow water and turbid water.
Corridola was discovered by Charles Darwin between 1831 and 1836. Charles Darwin stumbled upon the little fish during the famous voyage of the Beagle for five years. Well done, Charles!
What makes Corridas so special?
These fish are popular because they are laid-back and easygoing. They don’t ask too much, and they don’t make a fuss about other fish. Cory catfish has even become friends with other fish species.
As we mentioned earlier, they like to feed other fish with debris and leftovers, so there is no need to worry too often about cleaning the matrix. Benthic fish are very important when you have a sand or gravel substrate in your tank. This is because they keep moving the substratearound, filtering the water as they go to their business.
Tanks without benthic fish need to be cleaned and cared for more frequently, especially if they have sand-based plates in the tank. If the sand is not taken care of by the underlying filler, the sand will quickly change color and dangerous airbags will form. Now dig the sand by hand and help slow the process.
Corridonas and Egg Laying
Corridoras, like many other spawning fish, has a tendency to eat their own eggs. Therefore, once the spawning and spawning period is over, it is important to separate the small fish from the egg immediately. The most important part of caring for eggs is to ensure that adult fish leave the water tank as soon as possible to prevent coriander from eating their fry.
Corridonas also eats his own fish in the wild. This is the way they control the population. We’re not sure whether Corridora eats eggs that they think are genetically damaged, or if they’re just living instincts.
Fish tanks and breeding tanks can be the same. While Corridas can lay eggs in their regular community tanks, it’s best to move them so you don’t have to deal with them.
Before prompting the fish to breed, make sure that the breeding/fish tank is fully circular. This tank should be as simple as possible and does not require fancy accessories in your breeding tank, just to make it harder to clean.
Corydoras eggs only need to hatch in 3-5 days, so it is important to prepare and recycle the canisters. If you are having trouble circulating the water tank, use a good water conditioner and beneficial bacteria to speed up the process.
Cory catfish females swim around, taking fertilized eggs to a flat surface. They like to put eggs on soft things like moss.
When is Corridas old enough to mate?
It’s best to wait until your corset is 12 months old before breeding them. This ensures that you don’t waste your time trying to breed immature fish.
Spawning can be a great stress on fish if they are not sexually mature. Another reason to breed fish too early is a bad idea. It’s likely that your male corsets will mature at 6-9 months of age, but try to avoid breeding them at such an early stage.
Make sure your corsets are at least 2.5 inches long before breeding, even if they are 12 months old. After all, fish mature at different rates, and size is the best indicator here.
If you are a resident breeder and want to get your Corridan population increased as soon as possible, you will be glad to know that they are very easy to breed. You can even get 15-20 healthy fish from a spawning session. Brilliant!
How soon can you breed Corey Doe?
Just follow the instructions below and reproduce your corset if you wish.
- You obviously need to pick healthy fish. This may seem like a mindless, but sometimes fish are not the best breeding conditions. If you have to do medicine for your fish, for any reason, I suggest waiting a few more weeks before you start the breeding process. This is because drugs can make fish infertile in a short period of time.
- Next, you need to re-evaluate the location of your breeding/fish tank. If it is close to the window, you will need to remember that natural light and external temperatures will interfere with the aquarium’s breeding activities. Try moving the breeding tank to a quiet, dark area of the room to control the light. (The soft light of 13 hours a day is perfect)
- Put a small hiding place in the tank. This can be a super simple thing, such as a big plant or some kind of cave (broken coconut shells are great for Corridora).
- Make sure that the tank conditions are ideal. Water PH levels should be between 6 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit and temperatures between 75 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure that 50% of the water changes are made daily so that the water remains clean. Water should be pre-treated before placing the fish in the water tank to avoid “new water tank syndrome”.
- Don’t try to breed a Corridora couple at a time. As we mentioned earlier, they are very social, and if there are only a few fish in the tank, they won’t be “in a bad mood”. Instead, there are three or four females, along with the same number of males in the breeding tank, and watch the magic take place.
You want to have a bigger aquarium ready, bike, and ready to take action when your new fry is ready to fill, if you find your tank is not big enough for any more companions. From spawning to frying to prepare to move in with the whole family, you will have about 4 to 5 weeks.
Please note that the new tank may take up to 8 weeks to cycle. Nor is this a process that can be rushed. Most of the time, with the right water tank conditioner, beneficial bacteria, and enough equipment, it will be a little faster. Still, prepare for the worst, and you won’t experience any shockors or obstacles.
Information about you: The new tank syndrome is when aquariums have an immature or inadequate filtration system. Beneficial bacteria are essential to ensure that ammonia levels remain low. If the replacement water is too “fresh”, large moisture changes can remove beneficial bacteria and cause fish to get sick.
Tank conditions for breeding Corridas
Corey catfish need a can that can hold about 30 gallons of water, even if they are just small fish. Think about it, Corridoro likes to live in school and can be raised with other fish and plants. This requires a lot of water tank space, so having a large enough water tank is key to keeping the fish in top condition.
Put a lot of small fish together in the tank, the trickiest part of which is that they like to swim around each other. Larger fish tend to be lazy than small ones, something that fish farmers didn’t expect at first.
The fish tank may look large enough to suit your fish, but look at their behavior in the tank. If they keep looking startled as if they were trying to get rid of each other, you should consider a bigger tank.
In the breeding tank, you will need the following:
Corridonas is particularly sensitive to temperature changes in the water. Having a reliable heater will ensure that your breeding fish is happy. Eventually, water temperatures become more important when spawning and hatching.
Can filter is a good choice, you can also go sponge filter if you like.
If you want to go all out and throw in a few live plants, LED lights are a must. In addition, they do make the tank look better. The lamp will help you find eggs and omelettes if they are hidden there.
Think of the tank’s soleplate as your lovely comfort blanket. It’s important to you, isn’t it? That’s how the Corridolos feel about sand. Anything except sand can damage the fish and cause discomfort. This certainly won’t allow them to reproduce successfully.
Do not over-do the vegetation in the breeding pool. There are some well-trimmed plants in the aquarium, and in the first few days, the seedlings feel safer. Javanese moss, hermit and a penny wood are good plants in your breeding pot.
Determine if your Corridora is male or female
When a fish is sexually immature, you can’t tell the difference between a male fish and a female. Well, unless you’re a Corrie catfish expert, of course.
Wait until the cherries are one year old or 2.5 inches long and observe them in the aquarium. You will find that some people look a little thicker and thicker. These are women. By contrast, males are super slim and look like young fish.
Will Corritoas change gender?
Corridonas doesn’t change gender. If they are male, they will remain male for the rest of their lives, also female. Any hypothetical gender change is purely due to identity error.
What to do when Corridoras spawns
Once the Corrido dog lays its eggs, take the adults out of the breeding chamber and put it back in the tank of the population. You can leave the eggs in the breeding pot, take care of them there, or move them to the frying pan.
However, both methods are very effective, however, inexperienced Cory cat fish breeders should avoid handling eggs completely because they are very fragile. As long as the breeding tank is quite small and tidy, once the eggs hatch, the fry will be very happy in the tank.
How to take care of Corridora Fry
Once your fry hatches, they don’t need to be fed for about 23-48 hours as they still feed on the remaining egg yolk bags in the stomach. Once you notice that the fry start to twist and giggle more than usual, you will need to feed them twice a day.
Newborns fry only powdered food in the first week of life. Once the fry has grown a little longer (after a week or so of dry grain), you can introduce live or dead protein. Small saltwater shrimp is a delicacy for crayfish. In the 3rd or 4th week of their lives, you should start feeding them frozen Daphne.
You may notice that one or two fry are not as strong as others, or they are a bit deformed. If you are breeding your fish, make you happy, then leave the weaker fish with genetic problems is good. If you want strong fish that will be suitable for breeding in the future, then this weaker fish should be separated from the rest.
When your fry is large enough to enter the water tank of the general population, make sure that the tank is large enough to hold all the fish. If you don’t have a large enough water tank, don’t want to have a larger tank to give some fish.
So you have it. Your complete breeding guide to Cory catfish. You can follow these tips for all Corrie catfish species. We hope you find this information helpful. Happy breeding!
