A minimum aquarium size of 30 gallons is recommend for the Emerald Green Cory. To replicate the natural habitat of this catfish, the aquarium should be well planted with plenty of
driftwood. Maintain a pH close to neutral and provide strong filtration to ensure proper health.
In the aquarium, females will collect the eggs in a pelvic fin basket and deposit them individually on plants, rocks, driftwood, and other objects. Pairs have been known to produce 900 to 1,100 eggs.
The Emerald Green Cory Cat will eat food that has settled to the bottom of the aquarium. However, supplemental foods such as
flake food, or
sinking carnivore pellets should be offered to ensure proper nutrition.
