Sympatric with CW069
seussi which has a longer snout. Before
C. seussi was described by Dinkelmeyer in
1996 its common name was "long-nosed gossei".
All of these three mentioned species like a warmer
temperature in the aquarium. 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 tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and
Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.
Diet: A good quality flake food and
tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen
or live food will keep your Corydoras in
