Similar looking to C.
from the Rio Amazonas near Tabatinga in Brazil but
found in a different location and with a slightly
different colouration. Included
in Lineage 8 (sub-clade 4) with the "intermediate
long-snouts" with deeper bodies. 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
Brazil, Amazonas, Rio Aracá.
Male: 6.5cm (2½ins)
Female: 7.0cm (2¾ins)
