Julii Corys are bottom dwellers with an inferior mouth surrounded by sensitive barbels. Under each eye, as well as in front of the adipose and dorsal fins, is a very sharp barbel that is believed to be for defensive purposes. Any fish attempting to swallow this diminutive catfish would be in for a painful surprise. Another interesting trait of this species is the ability to rotate the eye, which gives it the appearance of winking. Owners often find this quite entertaining and endearing.
As with many members of the Corydoras family, this species must be kept in a school,They get along well with other small catfish as well as small peaceful fish.
