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
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.
