This species comes from the
same area as C.
is found in slower and deeper water. This beautiful
species is quite rare in the hobby. 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 CW016 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
