This Brochis species
is found in southeast Peru in the Rio Madre de Dios
in 2015 and is similar looking to Brochis
sp. (CW035) from
Bolivia. At the moment it is not described and as
such gets a CW number of 136.
Aquarium Care: Keeping in the aquarium
does not present too much of a problem as long as
you provide good water conditions and a few good hiding
places to make them feel more secure in their surroundings.
You are also better keeping at least 6 of this species
as they are never very happy kept as individuals.
A planted tank can also enhance their well being.
Diet: The usual fare for adult Corydoras,
a good quality flake food, tablet food, frozen bloodworm,
grindal worm and whiteworm used sparingly. Remarks:
Brochis 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 so in the meantime we are
sticking with Brochis as there is marked
differences with the both genera. Brochis
is included in Lineage 8 (sub-clade
1) with the "intermediate long-snouts" with
southeast in the Rio Madre de Dios.
Male: 8.0cm (3¼ins)
Female: 8.5cm (3½ins)
