Relevant Information:

C060 is found in the same river location as the snouted species CW059 and is reminiscent of C. julii from further east in the Maranhão, creek, Rio Parnaíba near Alto Parnaíba and as such are very difficult to tell apart. 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.
