Hemibrycon spec. „Paraguay“

6. July 2007

Kein BildIn the last years some quite difficult to classify new species of characins arrived from Paraguay. Usually they belong to the genera Creagrutus, Hemibrycon and Piabarchus. As a common characteristic a high swimming activity can be called for all species of this relationship. They need thus tanks, with a large free swimming area. Thus long stretched aquaria are ideal for them. There a strong current can be produced with the help of a centrifugal pump, in which they can organize their “swimming contests”. They like to jump, a complete cover helps to avoid losses. According to their origin they do not like it durably hot, an unheated aquarium is very pleasant and preserve the purse of the owner. They do not place increased requirements on their nutrition, living and frosted food are preferred, but they can also be fed with flake food.(Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
