Relevant Information:

A long snouted relative to C. melini and similar also to C. davidsandsi but this species lacks the markings on the flanks that C016 possesses. 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.
