Relevant Information:

Similar to C. pulcher and CW028 (which has a shorter snout) and is not imported very often. Known for the two very bold lines on the mid-body. 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.
