Micropercops cinctus

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Odontobutidae
Origin : China, Korea, Japan
Length : 8 cm - 3"
Min. length aquarium : 80 cm - 30"
Peaceful bottom dweller, but males are rather aggressive during breeding times.  The aquarium should be planted on the sides and background and set up with stones, driftwood and roots that make hiding places.  A territory is made.  Clear water with a lot of aeration is appreciated. 

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

About breeding is the aquarium nothing is known.
