Relevant Information:

As with most of this genera will do best in a group. As they are from the southern limits of Brazil they will do better with cooler temperatures in the aquarium. Similar looking to C. baderi and also Scleromystax prionotos which resides in the same river system. 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.
