Similar to C.
this species has no blotch in the dorsal fin and has
bars instead. Lineage: Corydoras
reticulatus belongs to Lineage 8 sub clade 3
along with C. sodalis and C. latus
etc. which in the future will be taken out of the
Corydoras genera and given a new genus name.
This lineage comprises of the deeper-bodied species
and also includes the Brochis which at the
present resides in the Corydoras but will
be moved back to Brochis in future literature.
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. 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).
