Relevant Information:

This species was imported as Corydoras ornatus from Brazil in the Lower Tapajós River basin and has a colour pattern similar to Corydoras britoi and Corydoras pavanelli, but differs from both in having a black eye mask.. 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 and good quality flake to name but a few.
