Relevant Information:

Similar to C. trilineatus 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. Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will be happier in a group. Diet: Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.
