Toxotes microlepis (Smallscale Archerfish)
Very similar to the common archerfish Toxotes jaculatrix this species is perhaps the most widely sold of all the archerfish. It can be distinguished most easily by its markings, which is intermediate between the neat bands of the common archer and the alternating pattern of bands and spots seen on Toxotes chatareus. Although found in freshwater as well as in estuaries, this fish does best in slightly brackish water (SG 1.005).
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Archerfish need to be kept either singly or in large groups (at least 6 specimens) otherwise larger specimens tend to bully smaller ones. They are completely peaceful towards fish too big to be eaten, and should only be combined with docile tankmates.
