The Horseman’s Cory Catfish (Corydoras eques) is one of the most amazing and rare Corydoras species. They boach a strikingly bright orange coloration along its gills and back as it matures. This orange creates a very striking contrast with the metallic blue-green slate coloration along the sides of the body of the fish. While it is very rarely available and considered difficult to breed, it is truly exceptional in every way and it makes a marvelous addition to the nano, planted, and community aquarium.
We highly recommend using either sand substrate, or small-non sharp gravel due to the fact that they are usually sifting through the substrates.
Corydoras are omnivores and it is recommended that you feed them algae wafers and regular pellet/wafers as well.
