An active, friendly, long lived and
attractive fish, these are often unavailable in pet stores. They
are generally bred
chemicals and hormones, with limited availability. After years
to naturally breed and raise the fry of
this attractive and
easy to keep fish, we are finally able to offer these for sale
in limited quantities.
Smaller than the Syn.
petricola, it is similar in appearance, but shows a much lighter
background against the larger jet
black spots, and we have
recently begun to selectively breed this fish for a lighter
background against high contrast spots.
Very hardy and active,
they will dart about the bottom feeding throughout the day.
Excellent community fish, they will
hide together in plants
or rockwork, and prefer secure places to keep going back to as
they patrol the tank..
They will eat most fish
foods, and do best on a varied diet of foods that are both
carnivorous and vegetable based.
