Relevant Information:

This was the first species to be given the internet based CW-number in 2006 from the Corydoras World website owned by Ian Fuller. These numbers represent unidentified species that have not or ever have been given a C-number from the German based Datz magazine. CW001 is a dwarf species, which was first thought to be C. paragua, but the fact that it was exported out of Belem, Eastern Brazil it probably represents a new species. 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 good health.
