Relevant Information:

This Brochis species is found in southeast Peru in the Rio Madre de Dios in 2015 and is similar looking to Brochis sp. (CW035) from Bolivia. At the moment it is not described and as such gets a CW number of 136. 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.
