Relevant Information:

Very similar to C. zygatus which has a slimmer profile. The fry of each of these two has proven that they are two seperate Corydoras species. (Fuller, 1980) This unique pattern in the fry can be seen on the 5th and 6th thumbnail by image contributor and breeder, Graham Ramsay. 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.
