Relevant Information:

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.
