- Poecilichthys zonalis
Origin[edit | edit source]
- Found in riffles and runs of streams in North America.
Sexing[edit | edit source]
- Males are much more colourful, and will have blue stripes instead of brown. Sexing is much easier when fish are in breeding form.
Diet[edit | edit source]
- Since the majority of these specimens are wild caught is a good idea to feed them live food, as many will not learn to accept prepared food.
Environment specifics[edit | edit source]
- Found in clear fast moving streams, so a tank should mimic this, they prefer others of their species as tank mates.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
- Often sits on the bottom of the tank when housed alone.
