Relevant Information:

There is a similar looking species with larger spots which has not been named to science yet. The "Big Spot araguaiaensis" is also from the Mato Grosso in Brazil, but in the Rio Cristalino and has the c-number of C045. 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. Remarks: C045 has proven to be the same species as C. araguaiaensis which has smaller spots on the body.

Common Name:







South America: Brazil; Mato Grosso; Rio Araguaia. Type locality: Rio Araguaia, Brazil.
