With its combination of deep green body coloration and a distinctive orange stripe, the Eques Cory is a sought after species in the aquarium hobby. Although similar species have occasionally been sold (incorrectly) as C. eques, the True Eques Cory is found only in Amazonas State, Brazil, and is uncommonly imported. Similar to most species of Cory Catfish, the Eques Cory should be kept in groups (ideally 5 or more) and prefers a substrate of fine sand. Due to their larger adult size they make an attractive showpiece fish for a medium to large community aquarium and will do well with nearly any peaceful tankmates.
