Description: Schwartz's Cory is a pale tan/gray fish with several narrow black, horizontal broken lines across the body, broken vertical bands on the tail and a thick black vertical band that passes through the eye.

Females have a larger underbelly, when viewed from above, and males are also smaller. Has occasionally been bred in the aquarium; breeding follows the usual Cory formula. Spawns in pairs or groups, having more than one male (2 males and one female) increases chances of spawning. Condition the group on a varied diet of live and frozen foods. When the females are visibly full of eggs perform a large (50-70%) water change with cooler water, and increase oxygenation and flow in the tank. Eggs deposited around the tank, on glass and plants. The eggs hatch in 3-5 days. Once the fry have used up their yolk sacs they should be fed on microworm or Artemia nauplii.
