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

Should I get rid of snails? Snails in the aquarium can be very useful. Many fishkeepers tend to overfeed a little, and this extra food sinks to the bottom and decays, polluting the aquarium water. Snails will happily come and eat up the left overs though - if you have an outbreak of snails you are most likely overfeeding your fish! If you really do want to remove snails, fish like the clown loach, and several puffers will eat them - but do make sure they are compatible with the other fish in your tank
