Relevant Information:

This species was once named as a subspecies of C. blochi and was known as Corydoras blochi vittatus, but it has since been raised to a full species in its own right. 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.
