Copella arnoldi (Splash Tetra)
An interesting fish due to their behaviour of sometimes jumping in search of food and when spawning. With this in mind a tight fitting lid for your tank is necessary. These fish are peaceful and ideally should be kept as a group.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Breeding these fish is achievable but given their need to place the eggs above the water line they will either place the eggs on the tank cover or alternatively if you provide some planted matter above the water line they may spawn on this.
Sexing these fish is not very difficult. The male is larger and generally a lot more colourful. They prefer slightly acidic water which will be necessary if you want to achieve breeding success. The spawning behaviour is very interesting. Both fish will jump together to the spawning medium and will place a few eggs each time. The male will attempt to splash water on the eggs to keep them wet until they hatch. The eggs should hatch in around three days and will be free swimming two days later when they can be fed on infusoria and other small fry foods.
