This species was imported as a bi-catch
with C. zygatus from
Peru and is somewhat similar to Corydoras
eques from Brazil and has been given the Corydoras World
CW number of CW007. There are three species that are very alike,
the two mentioned and another one Corydoras cf. eques
which has been given the CW number of
CW043, it is also from Peru and is collected along with C.
rabauti from the upper Ucayali. 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.
