AQUARIUM CARE: This is a relatively small Fundulopanchax, but an attractive one. It is quite a peaceful fish, but will suffer in a community aquarium. This fish needs a species tank!

BREEDING: Breeding is relatively easy either using spawning mops or by providing a peat spawning substrate. Eggs may be incubated in water, or in damp peat. The fry eat newly hatched artemia nauplii immediately.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Well planted aquariums are not only great looking, they are also very beneficial to the fish. They oxygenate the water, absorb nitrates, reduce algae and provide refuge for fry (and other timid species). Plants like Java fern, hornwort, Amazon sword, Vallisneria (eel grass), Cryptocoryne and Anubias can all do well in a typical home aquarium with the smallest amount of attention
