Description: There can be a few differnt colour and patterned varities depending on what area of South America they come from. Usually the whole body strewn with numerous small, dark spots. Dorsal, caudal and anal fins are grey with rows of blackish streaks and spots. The belly area is white. Like corydoras aeneus, there is an albino variety.

Breeding of Corydoras paleatus is easy, usually a single coldwater change induces spawning. The males initiate the courtship ritual, which entails chasing the females around the tank. When the female is ready to spawn she turns to the male next to her and pounds furiously below his ventral fin. The male releases his seed and the female catches it in her mouth.The female cups her ventral fins and lays a few eggs (normally about 4) in them. The fertilized eggs are stuck on the plants or on the glass of the aquarium. After depositing a group of eggs closely together, the female rests for a few moments. The eggs hatch after 5 days. You can raise the young with very fine infusoria and baby brine shrimp.
