Very similar to C.
has a slimmer profile. The fry of each of these two
has proven that they are two seperate Corydoras
species. (Fuller, 1980) This unique pattern in the
fry can be seen on the 5th and 6th thumbnail by image
contributor and breeder, Graham Ramsay. Lineage
: Placed in Lineage 7 alongside other members of the
so called "aeneus group" with the designated
type species: C. eques. A revision in the
future would constitute the resurrection of the genus
name Osteogaster (Cope, 1871). 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 good quality
