Often misidentified as C.
is a slimmer species with a smaller head from Guyana.
Placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision and a description in the future would constitute
the resurrection of the genus name Hoplosopma
(Agassiz, 1846). 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
Brazil: Est. Amapá, Río Oiapoque.
Male: 4.5cm (1¾ins)
Female: 5.0cm (2ins)
