This species lives in the
same waters as CW181.
Lineage: 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 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.
