Hemigrammus cupreus

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Characidae
Origin : Brazil
Length : 3,5 cm - 1.4"
Min. length aquarium : 60 cm - 20"
Peaceful schooling fish for a small community aquarium.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.  A dark substrate and a dimmed light by using floating plants bring out the colours of the fish.  A regular changing of the water is appreciated.

You should give them small live food.  Frozen and dry food are accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
