The Julii Corydora is a small attractive catfish from South America that has been popular among aquarists for decades. Like all cories, the Julii needs a soft sand substrate to protect its delicate barbels from damage. The tank should be furnished with bog wood and plants to offer this fish plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. They are a social species and should be maintained in a group of 6 or more individuals. This will help them feel more secure.

Ideal tank mates would be other smaller shoaling species of fish. We recommend other South American species such as Apistogrammas, Angel Fish, Tetras. Avoid larger cichlids and anything too aggressive or boisterous as it will make the cories spend more time in hiding.

Cories breathe air intestinally, so it's important that they are able to access the surface of the water. A small gap should be left between the surface of the water and the cover slides to allow this.

Food can be offered in the form of catfish sinking wafers, micro pellets and fresh or frozen fish foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia and bloodworm.
