One of the most attractive Corys out there, C. sterbai is a much-loved species, and for good reason! It has just about every attribute that you'd want in a Cory- a great personality, a healthy appetite, modest adult size, and a healthy appetite!
Like others of their genus, these guys are peaceful, active, gregarious, and curious fish, and adapt to a variety of environmental conditions. These are hardy, tank-bred specimens, so they are very easy to work with! They often swim actively in the water column and chase each other amusingly around the aquarium. They are easy to feed, taking a variety of live, frozen, and even dried foods.
Like many Corys, they seem to do better in a group, and you should see some more active, endearing behaviors. We offer them as a group of 4 specimens- perfect for the serious Cory enthusiast! And as a bonus, it's considered one of the easiest of its family to breed, so if you can purchase a larger group, your chances will improve greatly!
