Corydoras julii

Feeding Your Fish Tips: Give your fish a variety of tropical fish food and not just flakes. Read the nutritional information on the canister of food to see what vitamins and minerals your fish is getting. Flakes can be the primary diet for many fish because they are packed with the vitamins and minerals your fish needs. However, try to supplement their diet with other types of food every once in a while. You should see better colors and increased vitality by varying their diet.

Contents of this page belong to www.fishlookup.com Corydoras julii (also known as the Julii Cory or Leopard Catfish) is a member of the Corydoras family. Corys are small, bottom dwelling scavenger catfish that are loved by aquarium keepers for their looks, personalities, and bottom cleaning skills.

Julii Corys are peaceful fish and will do well in a community aquarium with other community fish. They need to be in groups or “shoals” of four or more of the same species as they like to swim in schools and stay together mostly all the time. A small shoal should be kept in at least a 20 gallon tank.

Julii Corys are one of the most commonly sold corys because of their beautifully patterned bodies. Their flesh is a whitish gray almost transparent color with small, striking black striped and spots all over. You can tell a Julii Cory apart from other striped corys because of the large horizontal stripe that runs through along their side, the dark black spot on their top fin. They grow to about 2.5 inches, making them a smaller member of the cory family.

Julii Corys are scavengers and omnivores that will eat food that sinks to the bottom of the tank. They should be given high quality sinking pellets to ensure proper nutrition but will also eat flake food that falls to the bottom. Blood worms and brine shrimp should be given as a treat.
