Although the name sounds stinky, the Skunk Cory is not an unusually smelly fish. The name arises from the stripe that runs down its back. Unlike the land Skunk, the Skunk Cory
is a welcome guest, making an attractive addition to an aquarium of small to medium sized peaceful fish. If you love small schooling fish, consider a school of "skunks" for your aquarium.
