Another recent member of the
so called "Aeneus" group from Argentina.
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 7 alongside
other members of the "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 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
a good quality flake.
Argentina, Corriente provence, Rio Uruguay system.
