Arnoldichthys spilopterus (African Red Eyed Characin)

A peaceful, schooling fish well suited to the African-themed community tank along with dwarf cichlids, dwarf Synodontis catfish, Congo tetras, and the smaller climbing perches.

This fish has large, silver scales along the flanks with a shimmering yellow and blue running along the middle. The eye is red.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Males and females are similar, though females are more strongly coloured, particularly on the anal fin. Breeding is not difficult. Pairs scatter eggs among plants. The fry emerge after about a day, and become free swimming within a week. At this point they will accept small live foods and finely ground flake. They grow rapidly.
