This species can be variable
in colouration and is also quite rare in the hobby.
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 1, and
when there is a revision they will stay as Corydoras
(Lacépède, 1803) with the type species
of C. geoffroy La Cépède, 1803.
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
a good quality flake.
Brazil, Rio Poranga, 8 kilometres north of the Nobua
oba, where the two streams join a small tributary
of the Upper Negro River.
Male: 6.0cm (2¼ins)
