Similar looking as to C120 from
the Río Madre de Dios in Peru, but this species
has a longer black body stripe and dashes and spots
to the head whereas CW062 has more of a reticulated
pattern to the head. CW062 appears to have wider stripes
in the caudal fin. Placed
in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted" species
with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: This is akin to most
of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed
with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras,
Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding
purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as
they will be happier in a group. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake to name but a few
from the vicinity of Pando in Northern Bolivia.
Male: 4.5cm (1¾ins)
Female: 5.0cm (2ins)
