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