Family: Characidae

Origin: South America, Lower Amazon, Guyana and Brazil

Maximum size: 4.5cm

Care: Conditions (pH 6.0-7.5), the temperature should be 24-26C Keep in groups of at least 5-6. If keeping less than this they might keep low in the tank and not move around so much. Bigger shoal make livelier fish, they are best in open water.

Sexing and breeding: The males have rather longer finnage, and brighter markings. It is moderatly difficult to breed these fish.

Comments: Beautiful elegant fish with a lovely rosy colour hence the name. very good community fish, not at all aggressive.
