First given the C-Number in
the German Datz magazine in the April edition of 1995.
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:
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.
