Relevant Information:

This species is almost identical to Corydoras eques from Brazil, but differs slightly in body shape and colour pattern. It has been given the CW number of 43. There are three species that are very similar. The species depicted here was collected alongside C. rabauti in the upper Ucayali in Peru. The other, also from Peru, is captured alongside C. zygatus and has been given the CorydorasWorld number of CW007. The other species is the true Corydoras eques from Brazil. 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. Remarks: It is the consensus that CW043 may actually be the same species as C. eques. It may have been exported from Manaus.
