The bronze corydoras (Corydoras aeneus), also known as the bronze cory and green corydoras, is a small, tropical catfish that ranks among the most popular catfish kept in home aquariums.. They are native to South America and can found from Argentina in the south, all the way up to Columbia in the north. 

The Bronze Corydora Catfish (Corydoras eques) is one of the most coveted, but rare Corydoras species, especially when it comes to tank-bred specimens. It develops increasingly bright bronze coloration along its gills and back as it matures. This Bronze creates a very striking contrast with the metallic blue-green slate coloration along the sides of the body of the fish. While it is very rarely available and considered difficult to breed, it is truly exceptional in every way and it makes a marvelous addition to the nano, planted, and community aquarium. 

They primarily tend to inhabit slow moving rivers and streams, and prefer areas with shallow, muddy water. With that being said, they can also be found in everything from fast flowing rivers, to nearly stagnant pond and marshes.

They are one of only a handful of fish that can thrive in stagnant water, and they do this by utilizing their specialized ability to breath air from the surface of the water. Even in the home aquarium, you will often see them darting to the surface to take a quick gulp of air, and then diving back down to the bottom.
