This species was first introduced
in the German DATZ magazine of the July 1998 issue.
Colouration: Can be readily identified
by the white and black tips to the dorsal fin and
caudal fin lobes. Aquarium Care:
This fish can be territorial with its own kind and
so must have a big enough aquarium if more than one
is kept. Regular water changes must be adhered to,
and also having a powerful filter system that can
deliver a high oxygen content. Hiding places are beneficial
to this fish with bogwood or wood of some description
and/or some rockwork. Diet: Not a
true vegetarian so a wide variety of foods including
algae, algae wafers, cucumber or courgette ( zucchini),
prawns, shrimps and tablet food.
