Relevant Information:

Similar to C. cruziensis from Bolivia and are difficult to tell apart. Quie rare in imports. 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.
