 About the Cover

Corydoras catfish, such as this orange laser cory (Corydoras sp. CW-010), are some of the most popular and familiar fishes in the aquarium hobby. As the number of known species grows, newly discovered Corydoras are assigned either a C or a CW alphanumerical code, similar to the L-numbers assigned to loricariid cats. Despite often being viewed as solitary bottom-feeders, Corydoras cats are schooling fish with important dietary needs, as explained by TFH Contributing Editor Joshua Wiegert in our new column, “Bottom of the Tank.”

Tip of the Month:

That most fish like bananas? Seeds and fruits make up a good portion of the diet of many popular aquarium fishes, but even fish that would never see a banana in their native habitat will probably enjoy eating one. Try a small portion of mashed banana, and see if your fish don't go ape over it!
