Rineloricaria melini

6. July 2007

As a further german bred rarity we can offer Rineloricaria melini at present. Our specimen of the probably most attractive Rineloricaria species have with 9 – 12 cm length already attained full growth and are of outstanding quality. Their origin is the area of the Rio Negro where they live in black water biotopes. Like all Rineloricaria species they are cave spawners in the male gender. An aquarium for Rineloricarias should have densely planted zones, and also open areas and some caves. They are omnivores, which need both vegetable and animal food.
