When first imported it
was first thought to ba a natural hybrid between C.
caudimaculatus and C.
haraldschultzi but was later described
in 1999 by Knaack as a valid species. This species is variable in
colouration and markings. 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.
