Hyphessobrycon erythrostigma
Bleeding heart tetra
breeding notes

BREEDING: Male fish have elongated dorsal fins, so sexing pairs is not problematic, however breeding of this egg scatterer is difficult, and rarely achieved

Have you bred Hyphessobrycon erythrostigma? Why not fill in a breeding questionaire?

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Vegetarian fish Some catfish have a largely vegetarian diet; feed them potato, lettuce, cucumber or blanched peas.
