Burgessi Cory *Super Rare*

Rs. 2,600.00
Unit price  per 

Burgess' Cory is beautiful catfish that is ideal for the mature softwater aquarium. This is a peaceful bottom dweller which should be maintained in groups of 5 or more due to shoaling nature. In the wild, C. burgessi is known from pristine blackwater tributaries of the upper Negro River basin, so they will always be at their best in soft, acidic water long-term.

Unfortunately, this species can be a little prone to barbel infections/erosion, so it is of paramount importance that they are kept on a soft sand substrate (rather than gravel where waste can build up unseen) in order to protect these delicate sensory organs. Regular maintenance, including frequent partial water changes, should be carried out in order to keep these fish in good condition.

Provide plenty of shady areas amongst driftwood, rocks, and areas of dense planting. Other peaceful species such as some of the smaller pencilfish, tetra, and rasboras make ideal tankmates, and their presence as "˜dither fish"™ in midwater will encourage the Corydoras out into view more often. Corydoras have the ability to breathe air intestinally, so a small gap should be left between the surface of the water and the cover slides in order for the fish to come up to the surface and take air in. It may do this numerous times per day. This species is similar to several Corydoras with orange head blotches; however, this area tends to be more gold/peach coloured in C. burgessi.
