The Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory is a color variation or strain of the popular Corydoras catfish species, specifically Corydoras aeneus. These catfish are known for their peaceful nature, active behavior, and their ability to thrive in community aquariums.

The Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory gets its name from its vibrant red coloration and the elongated, sail-like dorsal fin that extends along its back. This distinctive fin gives the fish a unique and attractive appearance. The body of the Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory is typically bronze or greenish in color, similar to the wild-type Bronze Corydoras.

In terms of care, the Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory requires a spacious aquarium with plenty of swimming space and hiding spots. They appreciate the presence of rocks, caves, or driftwood to mimic their natural habitat and provide territories. Providing a sandy or fine gravel substrate is also beneficial for them.

Water parameters for the Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory should be maintained within certain ranges. They prefer slightly alkaline to neutral water conditions, with a pH range of 7.0 to 7.8. The temperature should be kept between 72-79°F (22-26°C). It's important to provide good filtration and perform regular water changes to maintain optimal water quality.

Feeding the Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory is relatively straightforward as they are omnivorous. They will readily accept a varied diet consisting of high-quality pellets, flakes, and frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, or small invertebrates. Including some vegetable matter in their diet, like blanched spinach or spirulina-based foods, is also beneficial.

The Red Sailfin Venezuela Cory is generally peaceful and can be kept in community aquariums with other non-aggressive fish that are not small enough to be considered prey. However, it's always important to observe their interactions and ensure that tankmates are compatible.
