Similar looking to C.
Peru in body colour, but is a much larger fish. Placed
in Lineage 7 alongside other members
of the so called "aeneus group" with the
designated type species: C. eques. A revision
in the future would constitute the resurrection of
the genus name Osteogaster (Cope, 1871). 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.
