Erythrinus erythrinus

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A big, territorial, and highly predatory characin only suitable for the advanced aquarist. These fish not coexist with one another, cannot really be kept in a community tank, though sturdy tankmates such as plecs may be an option. But best kept alone.
