This species is very similar
It is distinguished from the other two by the golden
iridescent band along the body. Known in Brazil as
'Linha de Ouro' because of the golden iridescent longitudinal
band. This species was given the C-number of C073
in the October edition of the German Datz magazine
of 2001. Placed in Lineage
6 which has always been classified as Corydoras
(Lacépède, 1803) so a new genus would
need to be described and a new type species when a
new revision is carried out. 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.
