Nannostomus beckfordi (Golden Pencilfish)

Referred to as the golden pencilfish although they do have a lot of red in their colouration. A relatively small fish that should be kept as a group. They make a good addition to a community tank which includes other similar sized fish.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Very peaceful fish which are not too difficult to breed. The males are much redder in colour than the females and they are also slimmer than the females. Condition the fish on a good and varied diet. Look for when the females start to fatten up and then place a pair into your spawning tank. Put some java moss into the tank which the fish may scatter their eggs on. The parents should be removed once spawning has taken place. The fry are very small so when they are free swimming feed on infusoria and other small fry foods.
