Corydoras paleatus is found in the amazon basin,and feeds on worms, crustaceans, insects, and plant matter.
C. paleatus has been known to produce sound; it does this by abduction of its pectoral fins. This is used by males during courtship and intrapersonal communication, and by both sexes and juveniles when distressed.
In reproduction, males do not behave aggressively toward each other, nor do they monopolize mating areas or females.The T-position is involved in courtship, as with many other Corydoras species
