Relevant Information:

Adult males can be quite striking with their long dorsal fin. Similar to appearance, as juvenile, to C049 which is found in the Purus system in Brazil and called 'False robustus' by the exporters. 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.
