A generally peaceful and hearty fish. These fish come from very brightly-colored parents. Exhibit exquisitely long fins and would make a beautiful addition to your community aquarium.Sizes and colors will vary.
Males develop long bristles on their noses, while female bristles are shorter or non-exsistent.
Males can get territorial with the other males and should be provided adequate hiding places (like our Pleco Ceramics caves and decorations).
Safe for most plants, but have been known to nibble on Swords, Anubias, and other broad-leaf plants.
Minimum tank size: 20 gallon for 1 adult ( 5-10 gallon for juveniles)
Territorial (males compete for turf)
Average purchase size: 1”
Max size: approximately 5"
Diet: Will eat algae as juveniles, but diet will need to be supplemented with quality sinking foods (like our Eat Your Greens Sinking Spirulina Pellets, Garden Salad Vegetable plus Spirulina Flakes and Green Dream Spirulina Wafers), Repashy (Soilent Green, Super Green, Bottom Scratcher), Fresh veggies (Zucchini, Cucumber, Squash). Will also benefit from Driftwood, Cholla Wood and Catappa Indian Almond Leaves.
