Identification C.rabauti is quite a chunky fish and in good condition is a deep rust colour with well coloured fins and spines.There is a broad dark line that bends downwards at the caudal peduncle and there is a faint hint of it extending onto the caudal fin, this same line can have a slight shine in good light but never as much as C. zygatus with which it is often confused.
General Remarks Active during the day and, for a Cory, not shy.
