Similar looking as to CW004,
but with all different snout shapes which points to
different lineages. CW155
is placed in Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises
the "intermediate long-snouts" with deeper
bodies. It also includes Brochis in sub-clade
1 which was synonymised with Corydoras by
Britto in 2003 but in time there will be a revision
which will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871)
to full genera again. 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.
Diet: A good quality flake
food and tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings
of frozen or live food will keep your Corydoras
in good health.
