This peppered cory cat, most likely C. paleatus, is an interesting and entertaining addition to most tropical community tanks. Cory catfish like this usually do all right on their own, though they are a schooling fish.

"I always just vacuumed the gravel like I vacuum my carpet. This last Saturday I followed your instructions. What a difference! I can't say I got the technique down perfectly but the end result was tons of less gunk floating in the water."
