Relevant Information:

This species was formerly split into two subspecies, this one which was C. blochi blochi and the other, C. blochi vittatus, which is now a species in its own right as C. vittatus. It was also cataloged in the C-number system as C032. Aquarium Care: As this is one of the longer snouted species it will be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their snouts while searching out food. 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.
