Sympatric with the long snouted
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 9, the
"short-snouted" species with the designated
type species: C. punctatus. A revision in
the future would constitute the resurrection of the
genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: A tank setup would entail
a soft substrate such as sand or a small gravel and
a nice plant covering around the back and sides of
the aquarium. If housed in a community tank a mixture
of small South American characins or the smaller varieties
of Asian Rasboras would suffice, as larger fishes
would intimidate these shy Cory's, and would stop
them eating and would be therefore detrimental to
their overall health. Diet: The usual
fare for adult Corydoras, a good quality flake
food, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and whiteworm
used sparingly. Young fry can be fed brine shrimp
from a very early age and grow quick in the first
month, then they are apt to slow down.
