Relevant Information:

Very similar to C075 from the Rio Madeira, but from a different river basin; there is no evidence of specimens from the Rio Tapajos basin, which lies between the Rio Madeira and the Rio Xingu. Aquarium Care: As this is one of the longer snouted species it will be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their snouts while searching out food. 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.
