Pantana Cory (Corydoras Pantanalensis) C005 is fast-growing species of Corydoras that are native in the clear water wetlands (Pantanal) in Southern Brazil and Bolivia.
The Pantanal is one of the world's most significant wetland habitats. It covers an area of approximately 150,000 square kilometers and is very abundant in water vegetation.
Adult c005 is one of Corydora's most attractive fish that can grow up to 8 cm. The adult males show a lovely iridescent spotted pattern when breeding.
Pantanalensis Cory is a peaceful and hardy fish. Therefore, they are suitable for most community tanks. However, they should not be kept with a very large or aggressive tankmate.
Their perfect tankmates are cyprinids, small characins, dwarf cichlids, and anabantoids. Remember to keep Pantanalensis Cory in a group of at least six individuals as they maintain confidence and activeness in the presence of conspecifics.
