Relevant Information:

This new species (2010) is being exported out of Leticia in Colombia which lies on the border between Colombia, Brazil and Peru. It has been given the Corydoras World number of CW051. It is thought that it may come from the upper Rio Negro in Brazil. There is another very similar type which has a diamond shape running down from the dorsal instead of the blotch. This other species has been given the CW number of CW049 and may be another species or just a variation of CW051. 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.
