AQUARIUM CARE: Nothobranchius guentheri is one of the most attractive members of the genus, due to its bright colouration. Males can be aggressive when females are present, both to the females and other males. Best kept as a hareem in a small species tank, or as a spawning group with plenty of individuals in a larger tank

BREEDING: This is a typical annual substrate spawner, which should be spawned over peat, which is then partially dried and stored. Eggs develop at different rates, but usually most are ready to hatch after 3-4 months.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
