Relevant Information:

Similar to Corydoras ornatus. The males when sexually mature sport a black head. This disappears outwith the breeding season (info: B. H. Hansen). 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: The second thumbnail image is also very close in apearance to CW065.
