An undescribed species which
was given the CW-number of CW097 and is widely distributed
in a wide variety of habitats ranging from dense jungle
streams to open savannah streams.
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. 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.
