Similar in appearance to Corydoras
may prove in the future that it is a synonym of C.
fowleri as both species are quite difficult to
tell apart. Lineage: Placed in Lineage
1, and when there is a revision they will stay as
Corydoras (Lacépède, 1803)
with the type species of C. geoffroy La Cépède,
1803. Aquarium Care: As this is one
of the longer snouted species it will be well suited
to most community tanks. A well planted tank with
a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their
snouts while searching out food. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
a good quality flake.
