Telmatherina ladigesi
Celebes rainbowfish
breeding notes

BREEDING: Sexing this species is not hard; males have longer fins which they use to display to the females. An egg scatterer, and not too difficult to breed in a dedicated spawning tank. Fill the tank with spawning mops, moss or mables, and remove the adults when spawning is complete.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Cichlids? There are estimated to be over 2000 different Cichlid species in the wild, of all sizes, shapes and colours. Many require very specialist conditions such as those coming from the sandy/rocky waters of Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika. Others, such as the Apistogramma dwarf cichlids from the Amazon basin require softer water and a well-planted tank. In general cichlids do not make good community fish as they can get quite aggressive, especially when spawning - but a specialist cichlid tank is certainly a sight to behold, and can be very rewarding for the more experienced aquarist
