<p><b><span style=”background-color: #ff0000;”><span style=”color: #ffffff;”><span style=”font-size: medium;”>About Corydoras Catfish :</span></span></span></b></p>
<p>The Corydoras Catfish, or Cory Cat, are a great addition to any  community tank.&nbsp; Cory’s are peaceful in nature as they just like to be bottom dwellers.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Corydoras catfish refer to be in schools of 6 or more, however we have many customers who keep just one or two corydoras in smaller tanks.</p>
<p>Like most bottom feeders, Cory’s feed on <b><a href=”http://www.rfitropicalfish.com/tropical_fish_food”>tropical fish food</a></b> that will sink to the bottom such as <b><a href=”http://www.rfitropicalfish.com/dry_fish_food/veggie_wafers”>algae wafers</a></b> or <a href=”http://www.rfitropicalfish.com/dry_fish_food/shrimp_pellets”><b>shrimp pellets</b></a>.</p>
