Similar looking as to Corydoras
having a deeper stockier body and a different head
shape. CW157 is 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.
