Crossocheilus reticulatus (Reticulated Flying Fox, Fish Net Loach)
Elegant, streamlined shark-minnow with a very attractive reticulated pattern on the flanks, clear fins, and a large black spot at the base of the tail. The under-slung mouth and slender build reflect the fact this fish is adapted to fast-flowing waters where it feeds on algae and plankton.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Inhabits clear, fast waters and requires an aquarium with good water quality and lots of circulation. Supplementary aeration might also be required. Avoid excessively high temperatures, can combine with other fish that enjoy similar conditions, such as giant danios and Scleromystax barbatus.
Wild fish feed by grazing the algae on rocks. They also take a certain amount of zooplankton. In captivity, these fish will do well on green algae and algae wafers, supplemented with daphnia, bloodworms etc.
Crossocheilus spp. are schooling fish in the wild, but in aquaria can be aggressive towards one another if not kept in sufficient numbers. Keep at least six specimens, and do not overcrowd. Singletons will chase similar looking fish, including other shark-minnows.
Not bred in aquaria.
