Koch’s Corridor: photos, content and breeding

Hello dear readers! Kocha Corridor or the so-called Som Baby is a member of the Kallichtov family or the Reservoir Catfish. Homeland habitat of this aquarium fish are slow-flowing reservoirs of Brazil.

Corridors are considered unpretentious aquarium fish, so they can be easily wound up by novice aquarists.

The body at Koridoras is elongated and stocky, the profile of the abdomen is straight. The flattened sides are emphasized by a pair of rows of bone plates. The lower and upper jaws have a pair of whiskers.

The pectoral fins are well developed and they have a powerful bone ray. Also on the body of the fish there is a fatty fin.

The body of the fish is yellow-brown on the sides and the belly is white. A long black stripe passes through the whole body and ends with a spot on the caudal stem. In front of the dorsal fin several black specks can be seen.

On the first ray of the dorsal fin there is a pair of dark spots. And on the tail fin small dark specks form transverse stripes.

The male grows no more than 2.5 centimeters in length, and the female is just over 3 centimeters.

Somiki babies look best with a small flock. The length of the aquarium for corridors should not be less than 40 centimeters. When buying fish, ask for more males than females.

Aquarian substrate – large river sand. Plant more aquarium plants in the aquarium, the presence of bundles of javanese moss is welcome in Aqua, as well as weaves of curtains and rounded stones. The necessary content requirements are as follows:

  • water hardness: not more than 20 °;
  • temperature: 20-24 degrees;
  • acidity: 6.5 – 7.5 pH;
  • weekly changes: 20-30%;
  • good filtering.

You can feed with live food and sometimes dilute the diet with vegetable food.

The corridors breed in small spawners (12-15 liters). One female and several males are selected for spawning.

The female should be already with caviar. Spawning begins after the aquarist changes the water and lowers the water temperature to 20 degrees.

After brushing, the female will lay eggs in Thai fern or man-made fiber for several visits. As soon as the caviar is on the substrate, it must be transferred to the incubator. Fry appear on the third or fourth day.

When the fry begin to swim independently, they can be fed with nauplii of artemia.

Alas, no comments yet. Be the first!
