Do you remember where you read that? I've never heard of it and would like to check it out.

The pictures are of them in their QT tank. Once the QT Is done, they'll be moved into a 28 gallon with some guppies and bettas.

These guys are wild caughts, so should I be taking care of them any differently than I would any other domesticated Cory species?
Aww man I'm jealous I've been wanting some bandit cories I currently have 4 pandas would so love to add 3 bandits and 2 juli corys but am saving the last of my room for a pair of apistos. Beautiful looking fish by the way.

You should get them! They are much cooler than any of the apisto's I have! But at the same time, I've been wanting these for a long time and all the apistos were more impulse buys than anything lol

Thanks!

I'm gonna have to do some googling about that!
So only this species has the poison, or how does that work?

I'm not entirely sure but when the fish is chased, it releases a toxic substance like the marine soap fish. If the water is replaced quickly, the fish survives and probably won't act up again.

Yeah, just read up on it. I guess it's really common when they ship or they are with aggressive fish that might want to have them for breakfast.
It doesn't seem like it's a big threat in community tanks though luckily.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll keep an eye out just in case!

Nice fish. I was going to get some but I was afraid of stressing them. That's why if I end up getting them or any other self poisoning species, I'll go to a different pet store that way I won't be the one chasing the fish. I work at an LFS so catching fish was always very nerve wrecking.

According to that article I read, it's actually better to chase them and wear em out a bit so they work all that poison out in a larger body of water, then have a bag of fresh water to move them into or something.
Google corydora metea and it should be the first article if you care to find out

I once had a beautiful cory. Probably the best I've ever seen! I honestly can't remember the name I've had pandas and bred them, along with I had true black venezuelan cores. Unfortunately I lost interest and lost all the cores but two here is one i currently have
