Relevant Information:

Similar to C. leopardus. No breeding reports are known for this species. Some authors doubt the validity of this species even though it has the trademark round black spot in the dorsal fin. Similar also is C018 but this species has white to the leading hard dorsal ray and also C131 which is a more robust looking Cory, and also belonging to the leopardus group is C128. 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.

Common Name:
