Gymnochanda filamentosa

6. July 2007

This glass perchlet is a rare inhabitant in German aquaria. This species originates from Malaysia and Singapore. The male from G. filamentosa is easily distinguished from other Chanda species by the elongated fin rays of the dorsal and anal fins. The maintenance of these fish is not very complicated and a bit of salt added to the water will avoid a lot of problems. Breeding has been successful, although up to now no extensive breeding reports could be found. This glass perchlet accepts only life food. Also freshly hatched brine shrimps are taken eagerly. Flake or tablet food is generally not appreciated.
