Pseudomugil furcatus (Fork Tailed Blue Eye)
A very pretty rainbowfish that is only occasionally seen in U.K shops. The description it is sometimes listed as is Popondetta, but that name has been subsequently replaced by Pseudomugil. You will see from the attached photograph that the fins are tinged with yellow and the rest of the body is almost transparent. These fish make an excellent addition to a community tank and fully grown the males look very impressive, particularly with their striking pectoral fins which have bright yellow tips. The female is a much smaller, less colourful fish and lacks the yellow tip on the pectoral fins. They will accept all of the usual foods, including flake, frozen bloodworm and brineshrimp. They are generally very peaceful although the male can harass the female a bit and they are also happy to chase other fish of a similar size around the tank.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This fish is actually quite easy to breed if given good water conditions. Slightly alkaline with moderate to soft water seems to do best. The fish place their eggs on plants and if you do see them, transfer the eggs to a rearing tank. After hatching and once they are free swimming, feed the fry on infusoria and micro worms. A little later you can introduce baby brine shrimp and fine crushed flake. In no time at all the babies will have developed their characteristic blue eye.
