Corydoras Sterbai

Product Description

Popular for their attractive markings is the Sterbai Cory (Corydoras Sterbai.) Sterbai’s feature white spots on a black background on its head while the marking appear to change to the opposite of white background with black spots through the body.

Corys do not have scales, but their flanks are covered in layers of overlapping “shingles” (bony plates) They can also be recognized by the barbels round their mouths and the spines on their dorsal and pectoral fins.

Their flat bellies indicate that they live and search for food (artificial, or small live prey) on the bottom; they are active mostly at dusk and during the night. Originally native to South America, Corydoras species are ideal subjects for keeping in a tropical aquarium along with most other fish species.

Apart from being very hardy, they are a peaceful catfish, not shy in the aquarium (compared to some other catfish subjects that will often hide during times of light) and also practical in that they will help to keep the substrate clean as they vacuum up any leftover flake food or alike.

SEXING AND BREEDING

Sexing Corydoras Sterbai isn’t too difficult once you know what you are looking for. Females have a wider girth when looking directly overhead, more so than a male which will be narrower;  females will also grow to a longer size.

Corys are stimulated for breeding when cooler, oxygenated waters flow into their habitat, usually corresponding (in the wild) with the onset of the wet season. The breeding ratio that should be kept is 2 males per female. Good diet together with repeated water changes and drops of temperature are usually sufficient. However, raising the fry is not easy due to their high sensitivity. It is recommended that when fry are present, then an increased amount of water changes should be considered.
