Relevant Information:

Similar to Corydoras imitator and Corydoras  sp. (C039) the differences is the clear patch on the cleithrum which is similar to the same markings on the shorter nosed C121. Was first given the C-Number of 140 in the German Datz magazine of March 2005. 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.
