Living in the same habitat
This species was given the C-number of C084 in the
September edition of the German Datz magazine of 2002.
There is another species with the common name of Corydoras
"Mega meta" (C085)
which is similar looking from the Rio Huallaga in
Peru. 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.
