The Aspidoras genera differ
from Corydoras by their different behaviour such as
their swimming habits. The eyes are smaller, body smaller and
a smaller head shape in Aspidoras compared with Corydoras.
Aspidoras posses a duel fontanel bone structure in the
skull whereas Corydoras have only the one larger fontanel.
Aquarium Care: This genus are best
kept in groups of six or more and are best housed with small
fishes that are not aggressive. Provide a planted area in the
tank for cover and include a soft substrate such as sand or
small rounded gravel. Diet: Flake, tablet foods,
small live and frozen foods. Breeding: In my
experience they tend to leave between 6 and 10 eggs high up
on the glass. You can roll the eggs off with your fingers after
two to three days and place them into a small tank or plastic
box, whatever is your choice. The hatching rate is very high
and you can start feeding them after a couple of days after
hatching with small foods such as microworm.
