Another undescribed species
given the number by CorydorsWorld of CW120. Was in
the hobby previously as C. narcissus "spotted"
and C. sp. "Purus".
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 1. When
there is a revision they will stay as Corydoras
(Lacépède, 1803) with the type species
of C. geoffroy La Cépède, 1803.
Aquarium Care: As this is one of
the longer snouted species it will be well suited
to most community tanks. A well planted tank with
a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their
snouts while searching out food. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm a and
good quality flake.
