This is another of the so
called Corydoras aeneus colour variants,
which may or may not prove to be a species in its
own right. This species may turn out to be CW023
also as they are very close in colour and markings.
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 7 alongside
other members of the so called "aeneus group"
with the designated type species: C. eques.
A revision and description of CW010 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 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
