Relevant Information:

C. froehlichi can be distinguished from its most similar congeners, C. carlae, C. ehrhardti, C. longipinnis and C. paleatus, by the absence of small plates on the ventral surface of the trunk (vs. presence); and by having markedly rounded snout (vs. relatively pointed snout). 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. Remarks: Rare in imports. The thumnail images show the Holotype of Corydoras froehlichi, MCP 48433.
