This is a variable species.
There are specimens with and without the black in
the dorsal fin and also some that have the black from
dorsal into the top of body, and without. This species
has a hyaline (clear) caudal fin.
Lineage : Placed in Lineage 9, the
"short-snouted" species with the designated
type species: C. punctatus. A revision 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 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
Brazil, Rio Tocantins.
