Relevant Information:

This is a rare species that is closely related to C. paleatus. 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. Remarks: As this species is found in the southern most parts of South America it would need cooler water temperatures over longer periods.
