20 Red neon (Paracheirodon axelrodi) Origin: tributaries of the Rio Negro and the Orinoco, Rio Vaupes Length: 5 cm This swarm of fish living in habitats with clear water and black water in the field. There he stays in slow-moving and shaded areas, which is why the animals should not be kept in garish beläuchteten basin due to the light phobia. Moreover, this type should not be below 10 copies. The animals stay in the middle to lower regions of the aquarium. It distributes the swarm and each animal seems to take a small private area for themselves. The sexes are difficult to distinguish.

A slight flow and regular partial water change and some floating plants are looking to protect contribute to the well-being of Beilbauchfische. In the literature it is pointed out that this fish likes to be in the filter flow. I can not confirm. My animals keep rather in quieter areas and are not shy.
