Was first given the C-Number
of 57 in the German Datz magazine of March 1997. Known
by the common name of Corydoras 'Nordestini'.
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.
