Relevant Information:

Sympatric with CW069 and C. 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. 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.
