Sixray Corydoras is also known as False Corydoras. Its scientific name is Aspidoras pauciradiatus.
It’s a small freshwater fish that lives in tropical areas of South America, specifically in the Araguaia River basin in Brazil.
The fish can grow to be up to 1.1 inches (2.9 centimeters) long and likes water with a pH between 6 and 7.2, a hardness level of 12 dGH, and temperatures between 72°F to 77°F (22°C to 25°C).
Sixray Corydoras eats worms, crustaceans that live at the bottom of rivers or lakes (“benthic crustaceans”), insects, and plants.
When it wants to lay eggs, it looks for really dense vegetation where the eggs be safe from predators until they hatch because adult sixray corydoras don’t take care of them after laying them.
People like keeping these fish in their aquariums, so you might see them being sold at pet stores or online aquarium shops.
