Similar to C.
from the same catchment area. So much so that there
is a belief in some quarters that they are one and
the same species (C. acrensis is C. trilineatus)
due to only one specimen (the holotype) being described.
Placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: A tank setup would
entail a soft substrate such as sand or a small gravel
and a nice plant covering around the back and sides
of the aquarium. If housed in a community tank a mixture
of small South American characins or the smaller varieties
of Asian Rasboras would suffice, as larger fishes
would intimidate these shy Cory's, and would stop
them eating and would be therefore detrimental to
their overall health. Diet: A good
quality flake food and tablet food for adults with
sparodic feedings of frozen or live food will keep
your Corydoras in good health.
