Relevant Information:

C. septentrionalis is one of only four species that posses a third pair of rictal barbels, C. amapaensis, C. geoffroy and C. simulatus are  the other three. These extra barbels are short and not that easy to see unless the fish is stationary. Sometimes imported with the exporters name of C."Olga" (also C. simulatus). This species for identification purposes should have fairly strong lines in the caudal fin. Aquarium Care: As this is one of the longer snouted species it will be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their snouts while searching out food. Diet: Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.
