Placed in Lineage
9, the "short-snouted" species with the
designated type species: C. punctatus. A
revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: This is akin to most
of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed
with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras,
Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding
purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as
they will be happier in a group. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake.
Colombia, Rio Cuduyari, and small population in main
stream of Rio Vaupes.
Male: 3.5cm (1½ins)
