Offering Corydoras trilineatus (Three-Lined Cory).

Known from a variety of names including three-lined, trilineatus, leopard, false julii etc, this catfish hails from the Amazon River. Often confused with corydoras julii, trilineatus are hardier, and can be distinguished by its reticulated markings as opposed to the spots on julii. Kept in clean water, with regular, small cold water changes this can trigger the breeding cycle, where males will chase plump females continuously. They do best kept in aquariums with plants and hiding places for security, with a soft sandy substrate to protect their barbels as they actively sift for food. For maximum visual effect, these catfish often do well in aquariums alongside peaceful mid-dwellers and top dwellers.
