Belongs to the 'Elegans group'
and iiving side by side with some populations of C.
Placed in Lineage 5. A revision in the future could
involve the resurrection of the genus name Gastrodermus
(Cope, 1878), with the designated type species: C.
elegans. 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
a good quality flake.
