Found alongside Corydoras
filamentosus.Placed in Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises
the "intermediate long-snouts" with deeper
bodies. It also includes Brochis in sub-clade
1 which was synonymised with Corydoras by
Britto in 2003 but in time there will be a revision
which will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871)
to full genera again. 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.
