Amandajanea Corydora, Corydoras Amandajanea, is an unusual and rarely seen species of catfish.
They are native to Rio Miuã system of streams, of the Amazon River.
The Amandajanea Cory is a beautiful species- the body is very pale, and a black stripe begins just in front of the dorsal fin and runs to the base of the tail. They also poses a dark eye spot, and the back of the head and gill plate are a pale gold.
Amandajanea Corydora are generally an easy fish to care for, providing basic needs are met. They do best on a fine substrate, either sand or micro gravel. Corydoras will root around in substrate looking for food, so sharp substrates can damage the barbels at the front of their mouths. Other décor is largely down to personal taste. Areas of cover will provide security, resulting in more outgoing and active fish.
Corydoras thrive best in clean water with stable parameters, with a pH of between 6.5-7.2 being ideal.
Amandajanea Corydora are not the easiest to sex, especially when young. Females tend to be bigger and are rounder and broader-bodied than males, which stay smaller and slimmer. There are no reports of this species of cory being bred in captivity, but a ratio of one female to two males would be ideal if attempting to breed them. Corydora are a shoaling catfish, and thrive best in groups of 5 or more.
Amandajanea Corydora feeding requirements
Amandajanea Corydora are omnivorous in diet and will eagerly accept dried, frozen, and live foods. A good quality protein-based tablet or granule is ideal as a staple diet, supplemented with frozen food enriched with garlic and vitamins. This will ensure good health and vibrant colours. Live food, especially tubifex and bloodworm always goes down well too!
