This small species is similar
the Rio Paucerna but this Corydoras lacks
the dorsal blotch. Sympatric with C.
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.
