Similar to C100
and is rare in imports. Discovered in the upper Rio
Solimoes by Dr Herbert R. Axelrod and named in honour
of his wife Evelyn. Lineage: Placed
in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted" species
with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
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
a good quality flake.
Amazon River basin, Brazil. Type locality:
Brazilien, oberer Rio Solimoes.
Male: 5.5cm (2¼ins)
