Name that fish! Then, give me some info on it!
Hi, I purchased some fish, which looked like a version of some Epiplatys, from Petsmart. They had them Labled as "Blue Panchx", but, noone there knew anything about them. I bought some anyways, what I believed to be 2 males and 3 females. A few of them had much more brilliant colors than the others, so I assumed those to be males(the employees didn't know either). I have discovered them to be Aplocheilus panchax
, at http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/SpeciesSummary.cfm?ID=4756 But, mine are MUCH more beautifu. Mine have red anal fins, blue eyes, dorsals that go from black contacting the body, to yellow on the outside, black lined lips, little yellow fins in front of the anal fin, and the rear fin, I'm not sure what it is called, but the one that is used for thrust, is clear on the inside, then yellow, then lined with a thin line of black on the outside. They eat EVERYTHING! Moths, flys, mosquitos, neon tetras, flakes, pellets, BS, ANYTHING! that will fit in their mouth. They are fairly social, the "males" actually school with my Bala sharks, Rainbowfish, Clown Loaches, and Black Neon Tetras. The "females" spend most of their time searching the top, for food I presume. Does anyone have any information on this fish? Mostly information on breeding, can it be breed (sp?) just like a typical Killifish? AND, is it actually a Killifish, or is it something else? I found one website stating!
that part of it's name means "toothed carp". They look like no carp I've ever seen though, lol.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
