Sexing[edit | edit source]
- Sexually mature males are smaller and more brightly coloured than the females.
Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- An easy-going fish that should be compatible with similar-sized peaceful community fish. Avoid anything with long fancy fins though as they may be fin-nipped. Should be kept in groups of at least 6.
Diet[edit | edit source]
- Will accept most foods including pellet and flake as well as live/frozen food such as daphnia and brine shrimp. They have a small mouth so need fine granule foods.
Feeding regime[edit | edit source]
- Feed once or twice a day.
Environment specifics[edit | edit source]
- Appreciates a spacious tank with dense planting and plenty of hiding places. Prefers subdued lighting. Does best in acidic water.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
- A peaceful shoaling fish.
Identification[edit | edit source]
- An attractive little silver-coloured fish with a bold black lateral line with a band of iridescence above this.
