Sexing[edit | edit source]

Difficult to visually sex.


Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

An active fish that is generally peaceful, should be peaceful towards its own kind. Should not be housed with very timid fish as this fish's active nature may bother them.


Diet[edit | edit source]

Should accept most foods including pellet and flake as well as live/frozen foods such as brine shrimp.


Feeding regime[edit | edit source]

Feed once or twice a day.


Environment specifics[edit | edit source]

This fish needs a very long tank with plenty of open lateral swimming space, some densely planted areas will make the fish feel secure. It needs a secure lid as it's an excellent jumper.


Behaviour[edit | edit source]

A very fast swimming yet relatively peaceful fish.


Identification[edit | edit source]

A torpedo-shaped Characin with a pointed snout and sharply forked caudal fin. The body is silver with blue/green iridescence. The fins are darker in colour.
