Similar to C.
has a very distinctive colour pattern. This may be
a species in its own right or a naturally occurring
hybrid. First given the C-Number in the German Datz
magazine of November 1994. Placed in Lineage 9, the
"short-snouted" species with the designated
type species: C. punctatus. A revision in

to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and
Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.

tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen
or live food will keep your Corydoras in
