Abstract

A brief description of cory sychri.


                                              

Cory sychri (Corydoras sychri) is a small catfish that originates in inland waters in South America where it is found in the Nanay River basin in Loreto, Peru.  This fish grows to an adult size of about 2.6 inches long.  Females grow larger and are more full bodied than males, this is most easily observed from above the fish.   Males will typically have more pointed versus more rounded fin tips as they mature.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Cory sychri should be maintained in an aquarium of 20 gallons or larger.  A dark colored soft, sandy substrate (CS6630) is a good choice.  Driftwood (ZM2000) and  live or artificial plants may also be incorporated.     

                                                

Cory sychri prefers a temperature of 72°F to 79°F, a pH of 6.0 to 8.0, and a hardness of 2 to 25°H.  Be sure water is clean and well oxygenated.

                                                   

Cory sychri is a very peaceful fish well suited to a planted aquarium.  Good tank mates include many species of tetra, other cory catfish, rasboras, danios, livebearers. and many other species of peaceful fish.  These small fish are also safe to maintain with ornamental shrimp.  Cory sychri will do best when kept in a shoal of at least 6 to 10.

                                         

In the wild, cory sychri is an omnivore.  In the aquarium it will readily accept sinking pellets (AL166), algae wafers or better AquaLife CS Pro Sticks and flakes, as well as frozen foods.  For maximum color, growth, and health these fish will look their best when given probiotics (AL169) in addition to a balanced diet.
