The Paleatus Cory is one of our favorite Corydoras species. The Paleatus Cory is commonly called the Peppered Cory or Salt and Pepper Cory. They show their best behavior while shoaling in groups of 2 or more fish. The Pepper 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.
Paleatus Cories have a great peppered coloration that is sure to standout on any light colored substrate. 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 Paleatus 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.

What a cute fish for a bottom feeder. The four arrived quickly and healthy. They seem very happy in my 30 gallon aquarium.
They are doing amazing!!! Hanging out with the bigger Paleatus Cory is adorable
Great selection, healthy stock quick arrival
I had ordered more Paleatus corydoras to add to the school I already had. 2 did not make it but the rest were strong and healthy and of a good size. I can always count on Flip Aquatics for great shipping and great customer service!
Again, very pleased with the fish. They’re healthy and doing a great job of cleaning the substrate. Would purchase again.
