The Neon Red Laser
Corydoras Catfish is a boldly-colored variety of the popular Aeneus Corydoras
Catfish. Its striking oxblood red body coloration, glowing with an iridescent
sheen, is beautifully framed by gorgeous golden colored fins, giving this often
ignored aquarium bottom dweller a showy presence in any freshwater community
setup.

 

The Neon Red Laser
Corydoras Catfish naturally occurs throughout much of South America from
Columbia and Trinidad to central and southern areas such as Paraguay and
Argentina. The Neon Red Laser Corydoras Catfish lives in schools of 20 to 30
fish in the wild where the catfish will inhabit slower moving waters.

 

An established aquarium of
at least 30 gallons in size is recommended to properly house the Neon Red Laser
Corydoras. A soft sandy substrate will also be appreciated. Avoid substrate
with rough edges to prevent the sensitive barbels of the catfish from becoming
irritated. Aquascape the aquarium with plants, smooth edged rocks and driftwood
while leaving open spaces and areas for the catfish to swim. Neon Red Laser
Corydoras are social fish that enjoy being in numbers, so a small school of six
or more is ideal for these cats.

 

Neon Red Laser Corydoras
Catfish are omnivorous and will require a well-balanced diet including quality
flake food and pellets along with frozen/thawed blood worms, brine shrimp and
mysis shrimp for adult specimens.
