 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:

Use TWO nets to catch a fish in your aquarium. Use one net to drive the fish into the other. This saves wear and tear on you, the fish, and the tank.
