Relevant Information:

This Corydoras paleatus look-alike from Argentina has finely been named. As they get older the soft dorsal fin rays of the males become long and flowing. It formerly had the code number of CW003 on the Corydoras World Back to Family page Back to Family page website of Ian Fuller. 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: Coming from the southern parts of South America this species, like C.paleatus, like the water temperature to be more on the cooler side.
