Known in the trade as Corydoras
sp. ‘Yellow Cat’ because of its distinctive
yellow finnage. Lineage: Placed in
Lineage 5 and a revision in the future could involve
the resurrection of the genus name Gastrodermus
(Cope, 1878). 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.
