Relevant Information:

This is one of two similar species collected by Joachim Knaack from the same location. CW035 has a long snout and CW034 is shorter. There has been a third undescribed Brochis species discovered in the Rio Madre de Dios in Peru in 2015 which has the code number of CW136. Aquarium Care: Keeping in the aquarium does not present too much of a problem as long as you provide good water conditions and a few good hiding places to make them feel more secure in their surroundings. You are also better keeping at least 6 of this species as they are never very happy kept as individuals. A planted tank can also enhance their well being. Diet: The usual fare for adult Corydoras, a good quality flake food, tablet food, frozen bloodworm, grindal worm and whiteworm used sparingly.
