Relevant Information:

Similar to Corydoras trilineatus but C. julii is a much daintier looking species with fine spots on the head whereas C.trilineatus has wavy lines on the snout and is a more robust looking species. Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will be happier in a group. Diet: Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.

Common Name:

Leopard Corydoras
