There are currently over 180 described species of Corydoras, making it one of the most speciose of all South American fish genera. Corydoras will appreciate some cover in the form of rocks or bogwood. Most Cory species occur across a range of habitats from flowing rivers to still waters, so water flow in the aquarium is not critical.
