It is doubtful that we will
ever see the true species again, because of farming
and pollution, it is very rare in the hobby and it
may even be extinct. Very similar to C.
difluviatiliswhich was the fish that hobbyists had in
the 1980s and 90s which was mistaken for C. garbei.Lineage: Included in Lineage 8 (sub-clade
2) with the "intermediate long-snouts" with
deeper bodies. 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. Remarks:
