Very closely likened to C.
coriatae Burgess, 1997 which may very well prove
to be a synonym of C. fowleri. Placed in
Lineage 1 and when there is a revision they will stay
as Corydoras (Lacépède, 1803)
with the type species of C. geoffroy La Cépède,
1803. Aquarium Care: As this is one
of the longer snouted species it will be well suited
to most community tanks. A well planted tank with
a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their
snouts while searching out food. Diet:
A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults
with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will
keep your Corydoras in good health. Remarks:
A very impressive looking species.
