    The Corixidae are water bugs of economic importance, used as human food, for fish, waterfowl, cage birds, and others. The ecological aspects in Mexico are scarce. The objective is to point out some of them. Were carried out eleven samplings monthly from October 1995 to August 1996 in the piscicole pond “JC” in the State of Mexico. Two sampling stations were located and in each it was measured depth, transparency, temperature, oxygen, pH, conductivity, hardness and alkalinity. The corixids were captured with a sweep-net of rectangular form. Four species were registered: Trichocorixella mexicana, Graptocorixa abdominalis, Krizousacorixa femorata and Corisella edulis. The specie T. mexicana was increased their density by the transparency (0.27 m), the depth (0.78 m) and the oxygen (7.03 mg⋅L-1) and affected by a descent in the depth (0.17 m) and an increment in the temperature (20.7 °C). G. abdominalis increased their density by the transparency (0.28 m); descending for the pH (9.0), the conductivity (132.5 (μmhos⋅cm-1), the depth (0.01 m), the temperature (13.4 °C) and the oxygen (8.72 mg⋅L-1). K. femorata increased their density by the same parameters that T. mexicana and their descent was due to the increment in the hardness (100 mg CaCO3⋅L-1). C. edulis was only presented when the pH was lightly acid (6.9). The density of the Corixidae is in relation with the fluctuations of the environmental parameters of the “JC.” pond
