Similar in appearance to C.
is smaller and shorter in the body and lacks the body
spot at the base of the dorsal fin. Harder to breed
than C. nattereri and the loss of fry is
a problem. Not very common in the hobby. Lineage:
Placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: This is akin to most
of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed
with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras,
Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding
purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as
they will be happier in a group. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
a good quality flake. Remarks:
Nijssen described C. baderi a year later
(1970) as C. oelemariensis which is now a
junior synonym of this species.
