Corydoras species prefer a sand substrate as they enjoy scavenging for food. It is also less abrasive to their barbels making sand the best long-term substrate solution for the Corydoras family. 

We feed our Corys a large variety of foods which include finely ground Northfin flake foods, small Northfin pellets (veggie, community, & bug pro), frozen foods, and occasionally blackworms.

The scientific name for the Black Cory is Corydoras schultzei.
