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. 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
good quality flake to name but a few.
Amazon River basin, Brazil. Type locality:
Brazilien, oberer Rio Solimoes.
