22 Red neon
Size: 4-5cm
The maintenance should be done in a group, at least 10-12 fish. The ideal size of an aquarium is approximately 80-120 liters. It is not for a thorough examination and is partly covered by small plants, most smaller Amazonian plants. The temperature is set at 22-24 degrees Celsius, the water hardness to 10- 15 dH
Red Neon are typical omnivores who undisputed advantages over other demanding tetras such. B. Hemmigrammus bleheri, because they can be prepared for spawning with commercial food. The females will show a good spawning when they are offered once or twice live or frozen bloodworms in the week. Be careful with large quantities and long-term feeding, since the presence of heavy metals in the Red mosquito larvae negative impact on the state of health and of course have an impact on fertility can! In addition flake food can be served.

Red Neon are caught mainly in the central basin of the Rio Negro, as this area is best accessible and the financial outlay for fishing is therefore only slight. The export is then predominantly of Manaus and Barcelos. For the red Neon is a disadvantage that its biomass is very low. The weight of an average Neonsalmlers 0.13 gr, so weigh 1 million only 130 kg (Geissler 1990)
The circulation area of ​​the Red Neon is very extensive. There are still areas that are untouched by human hands, and in which it appears undisturbed. Another reason why one must not fear a threat of its occurrence in nature. The frequency of occurrence is influenced in nature by the amount of food, the fluctuating water level, the change of habitat and predators. Under unfavorable conditions the reproduction effect is high, which means that even a possibly smaller number of parental individuals can form a numerous population faster. Since meheren years protection is arranged in the spawning season, in which the undertaking is prohibited. The Red Neon comes in small streams of the upper and middle Rio Negro before (in recent years but have numerous expeditions its occurrence in the lower Flußlauf- rather illogical for us - confirmed). He lives here in the shallow shore water, usually at a depth of 40 cm, and avoids the sections in which prevails a strong current. His biggest deposits in the upper catchment area, where five to eight fish can be observed per square meter.
In blackwater a lack of plants and zooplankton is observed. Therefore, the Red Neon achieve under such conditions natural not the size as in the aquarium. Compared to the aquarium fish that are 4-5 cm long, they reach only 2.6 cm on average in nature. The service life is shorter. We estimate an average of one year. In the aquarium they usually live dagegn three to four years.
In nature, the cardinal tetra examined primarily on shady spots and spawns during darkness. With regard to the vacillation of the water level in the small streams it kommte to a seasonal typical fish migration. When the water rises, the fish swim upstream when the water drops, they migrate downstream back. These changes determine the beginning of the spawning season. The actual spawning season varies from year to year and moves between four and six weeks.
When I was a boy and began hunting in the '50s, there was a time guaranteed right approach: to spawn two-year males are brought together with one-year females. The revolution in my thinking caused the knowledge that I have acquired from Rychnov in which legendary breeder Josef espander, the cardinal tetra had already brought to spawn at the age of six to eight months. For a long time I refused to believe it, but then I could convince myself of the truth with their own eyes. That was in the 70s. Today, this approach has become in the South Bohemian aquarists for granted. In nature, fish [...] spawn

______________________Allgemeines For keeping apistogramma_______________

Animals of the genus Apistogramma are all from South America, the genus includes very many types (and there are continually added new) that are more or less frequently offered commercially. All species are called Haremsbildner ie a m. claimed several w. But that should not hide the many w. can be extreme bitches.

Apistogramma are fundamentally no simple fish !!!!!!!!!!!
Although "kacadu" and Co. is today gladly sold as easy-care simpler and more peaceful perch not or only partly true that way.
Who wants to keep Apistogramma successfully should note the following points:

The pelvis should be established Apistogerecht (The following tips relate to a frequent Offset community tank with ZBB):

1. Beck size on 80x35 base height is not secondary. Means optimally with sandy soil, definitely roots and caves, dense planting many hiding places.
I would always recommend a pool min. To have 3 month run stably on before Apistos come in.

2.The water: there are quite tolerant species and there are real niggles that may be indeed kept at non-matching values, but increased under any circumstances.
Fits the water is not so, we recognize the frequently first of all the long Flossenausüge, especially pelvic fins, are lost.
Even with torleranten species such as A.cacatuoides are fluctuating water levels and temperature variations not beneficial to health.
Nitrite and nitrate have no place in the basin, the basin should be sparse and partial water change should be carried out regularly. If you want to fiddle around on the water parameters so should the front of the water change !!!!!! and does not happen in the pelvis.
The water should be as clean as possible.

3.The food: the food should be as well, so varied and so balanced as humanly possible.
Selbstgetümpeltes live food is clearly to favor, Artemia and other live feed from breeding or loading are also good, but always pay attention to hygiene.
Frozen food is also good flakes and granules, even when very good products should not !!!!!!!! His main food.

4.Besatz / Company: As described above, all Apistos Haremsbildner, the classical approach in the pair, however, are going well.
There are some quite large expectant ways in which women can be very bitchy, here primarily A.cacatuoides, here should correspondingly large containers be provided.
Basically a female area has a diameter of about 30cm, which can be increased in case of poor planting a funnel to the top.
One should bear in mind when stocking planning always the the "co-inhabitants" must be selected in accordance with it should always involve peaceful species best without home turf claim, or the pool must be correspondingly large.
In the literature known to me is repeatedly pointed out quiet and peaceful co-inhabitants and that should be strictly observed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whether one puts a couple or a group, or even a harem is dependent on the tank size, the type and age of the animals and should always be clarified individually.

By following these instructions so is a successful attitude no more obstacles.
Finally, a par Tips:
One should observe well and respond quickly to signs of discomfort Apistos always, most drugs are not tolerated, diseases show significant Sympthome usually lead to death.
Also important is the origin of the animals. the dealer should be trustworthy, I would prefer breeder or exchanges. Animals should make a very healthy impression fins Klemmer should remain the same in the store, the same applies for sunken bellies curved back, etc.
