Very similar in colour pattern
Guyana. This species is the same as CW027. C154 is
considered to be the semi adult stage of CW027. 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.
Male: 5.5cm (2¼ins)
Female: 6.0cm (2½ins)
