The Green Cory is one of the most popular Corydoras species. They show their best behavior while shoaling in groups of 2 or more fish. The Green Cory is extremely peaceful making it a great addition to any community tank and even most shrimp tanks. They reach a max size of around 2.5 inches.
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 Green 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 is Corydoras aeneus
Our Tank Parameters
I have purchased Green Corys from Flip Aquatics before and I love the color when they are fully mature. I decided to give the ones I have a larger group. Very satisfied with the purchase.
Fish arrived healthy and bagged appropriately. Ordered 5, and they gave me an extra! They acclimated well and I’m very satisfied with them and they company!
These little guys arrived healthy and active and haven’t stopped yet! They’re gorgeous too. Love Flip Aquatics!
My 5+1 green corys arrived in excellent shape; the 1-day shipping was well worth their robustness and quick acclimation to my aquarium. Now I can sit back and enjoy them!
