We have three very similar
species, this species (C. bondi-C031), C.
copenamensis and C.
sipaliwini all from the Guyana shield. 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.
South America: Venezuela;
Yuruari River , Corantijn and Rupununi River basins
