May prove to be a variant
A red form of this species has been produced in Eastern
Germany. Lineage: Placed
in Lineage 7 alongside other members of the so called
"aeneus group" with the designated type
species: C. eques. A revision and description
of CW009 in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Osteogaster (Cope, 1871).
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
