Similar looking to C.
Est. Maranhão, tributary of Rio Itapecuru at
Caxias in Brazil. Placed in Lineage
1 the "saddle-nosed" species 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
good quality flake.
