There are reputed to be two
colour forms of this species. One has a stripe along
the body and the other one is devoid of this marking.
Placed it 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.
