Relevant Information:

Resembles C. robustus in colour pattern, therefore it has been given the common name of 'False robustus'. 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.
