Similar to C.
but this species has a deeper body, a steeper head
profile and more spots. Also similar to C.
Schultz first collected this species from the main
stream of the upper Rio Guapore, Rondonia, Brazil
and was thus named after this river by Jocham Knaack
in 1961. Lineage:
Placed in Lineage 4 which includes two of the dwarf
species and a revison would be a resurrection of the
disused Microcorydoras (Myers, 1953) with
the designated type species: C. hastatus.
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
a good quality flake.
Brazil, Guaporé River basin. Type locality:
Brasilien, im Hauptstrom des oberen Rio Guaporé.
