Relevant Information:

Similar to C. armatus but with no spots and possesing an orange blotch to the head. Found alongside CW057. Sometimes this species can take on a very dark appearance which may point to the colour and make up of the substrate or different water parameters. 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
