Relevant Information:

There is a similar species, C084, which comes from the Rio Tiquié close to the Colombian border, this species has a longer head and grows larger. There are also a few other look-a-likes, C. davidsandsi, C. metae and C016. Aquarium care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Diet: A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will keep your Corydoras in good health.
