False Bandit Cory

The Melini Corydoras Catfish, otherwise known as the False Bandit Cory is a handsome Corydoras Catfish with bold, graphic markings that originates from the Upper Negro and Meta River basins. The Melini Corydoras Catfish lives in small schools in the inhabiting pristine slower-moving blackwater tributaries.

A well-filtered, established aquarium of at least 120 gallons in size with a soft, sandy substrate provides a great home for the Melini Corydoras Catfish. Avoid substrate with rough edges to prevent the sensitive barbels of the catfish from becoming irritated. Aquascape the aquarium with plants, smooth-edged rocks, and driftwood while leaving open spaces and areas for the catfish to swim. They enjoy being in numbers, so a small school of six or more Melini Corydoras Catfish is ideal.

Melini Corydoras Catfish are foraging omnivores and require a well-balanced diet including quality flake food and pellets along with frozen/thawed blood worms, brine shrimp and Mysis shrimp for adult specimens.
