Relevant Information:

Easy species to identify due to the unique pattern in the caudal fin which it also shares with Dianema urostriatum from the Callichthyinae sub family. Not an easy species of Corydoras to breed, but it has been achieved. (see ScotCat article in Reference). 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.
