Part of the so called 'Elegans group'
and as such is similar to C. elegans
but is darker in the body with no markings and possesses a light
to pale orange band across the top dorsum area of the body. 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.
