Relevant Information:

This species is said to occupy the same or overlapping geographic areas with C. amandajanea and in some quarters there is a thought that they are one and the same variable species but it is listed in Fishbase as a species in its own right. 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.
