Relevant Information:

Shares a similar colour pattern with Corydoras schwartzi from the Rio Purus, Peru. Colour markings: Presence of a distinct mask accross the eyes and usually a dark blotch ventral to origin of dorsal fin or at basal part of dorsal fin; dark spots on the body arranged in three longitudinal rows; caudal fin with 4-5 vertical black bars, the first accross the base of the fin. 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.
