Similar in pattern to the
round snouted C.
axelrodibut with a longer nose so would be placed in Lineage 1 the "saddle-nosed"
species and when there is a revision they will stay
as Corydoras (Lacépède, 1803)
with the type species of C. geoffroy La Cépède,
1803. Aquarium Care: As this is one
of the longer snouted species it will be well suited
to most community tanks. A well planted tank with
a soft substrate such as sand so they can bury their
snouts while searching out food. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake to name but a few.
