Relevant Information:

As C.carlae is from Argentina so a lower temperture as per the conditions for the Scleromystax species would probably suit this Corydoras. Similar pattern to the larger C. paleatus. Aquarium Care: Would do well in a small to medium community tank with species that would suit lower temperatures such as the White Cloud Mountain Minnow. 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: Will sport yellow fins and barbels when in good condition.
