||SOUTH AMERICA: Orinoco River Basin, Columbia and Venezuela.
|Min Tank Size:
||20 gallons (75 liters) or larger.

||Best in groups of six or more.
||Mostly Carnivorous. Sinking pellets or flakes. Supplement with live or frozen bloodworms or white or grindal worms.
||Temperature of 68 to 79°F (20 to 25°C), pH 6.0 to
7.5, 2-20° dH
||Moderate to advanced. Sensitive to water conditions use good maintenance
habits as needed with all fish.
||Excellent fish for peaceful, non-competitive aquariums or a species-only tank. Other corydoras, otos, rasboras, shrimp, or characins would be good tank mates. Could co-exist with dwarf cichlids, but would compete for same tank space.
||Some experience required.
||As the name suggests, it has a longer nose than most corydoras. Like most corydoras, needs a sand or fine gravel substrate.
