Ameca splendens Video

Truly a beatiful fish, this was brought back recently.  Becoming less often seen in the hobby,
it is also thought to be close to extinction in the wild. The fine markings on the females
make this a particularly attractive goodeid, as well as the yellow stripe in the tail of the males.


Once common in the hobby  and occasionally available commercially, the original pure wild line
is not often seen. An easy, hardy goodeid to keep and breed, they rarely bother their young.
