Relevant Information:

The feature for which C121 is known, the brown patch behind the gill cover, does not appear until the fish are around 4 months old and about 3cm in size. Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will be happier in a group. 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. Remarks: This species could be a population of C. burgessi which shows this unique gill pattern
