Relevant Information:

Similar to C. sodalis but this species has no blotch in the dorsal fin and has bars instead. Aquarium Care: Will do well in a community setup with smaller tank mates such as Rasboras and Tetra's. Do not house with aggressive species or large Cichlids. Diet: A good quality flake food provides all the essential vitamins that they need with extra feedings of frozen bloodworm, white worm (sparingly) and tablet food. Remarks: There is a difference in markings and size in all the images here (especially thumbnail no.2) and this is a group along with C. sodalis which needs further work carried out to find out if they are all the one variable or different species (Fuller, pers. comm. March 2015).
