Relevant Information:

Very similar to C. polystictus from the same location apart from its smaller adult size. 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.
