Relevant Information:

This C -number species was being bred in the U.K. in the past but unbeknown it was another undescribed species instead of C113. The other similar species was given the Corydoras World CW number of Scleromystax. sp (CW038). C113 is also being bred in the U.K. Aquarium Care: As with most members of the Callichthyidae they are peaceful. The Scleromystax genera are good additions to "cool water" aquarium set ups with maybe other cool water fish such as White Cloud Mountain Minnows and other fish that are comfortable with a temperature around the 70°f (21.5°c) mark. Diet: As with other members of the Corydoradinae they relish tablet and good quality flake food with frozen bloodworm a firm favourite. They are also keen on chopped earthworms and other worm foods such as white worm used sparingly, and grindal worm.
