Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

CompatibilityGenerally an excellent community fish.
Temperature18-25oC (64-77oF)
Water chemistryNot too critical, but soft and slightly acidic ideally.
FeedingAccepts most aquarium foods
SexingFemales have a rounder shape and are usually slightly larger.
BreedingUse a temperature at the upper end of the scale and fairly soft water. Breed as a pair in a tank with fine-leaved plants, among which the eggs are scattered. Remove the adults after spawning to prevent the eggs being eaten. Eggs hatch in about 48 hours.
Comments A hardy and highly active shoaling fish for the upper region of the aquarium. It is recommended that they be purchased as a small group, as individual specimens tend to fade away by themselves. Long-finned varieties and golden/albino colour forms are available. They are occasionally associated with fin-nipping, but this is the exception rather than the norm, and they generally make excellent community fish.
