Tanichthys micagemmae - Vietnamese cardinal fish (running since May 2014)
This aquarium should appear larger and deeper than it actually is. As stocking therefore even small fish came into question for me. In addition, the fish should be room temperature and hard water and like a bit of color would be the icing on the cake.
The Vietnamese cardinal fish meets these conditions. Absolutely peaceful, 3-4 cm tall, like room temperature, hard water also fits inconspicuously and can also call him not just. On 09.26.2014 are now drawn 13 of them.
I think he is a little lively shining jewel (the Latin name gives me right: micare = gloss and gem jewel =) and the red mouth I find simply cute.
I think the pool Like and fulfilled their claims. In nature, it lives only in anscheindend Ben Hai River in Central Vietnam and may well verkrautetes fast flowing water. The flow I have set so that about half of the basin takes place a visible water movement.
The adults (mainly) swim several times a day for a short time in the swarm, but occupy most of the time and defending the male Mini areas. Every adult intruder is either sold or it will impress each other - open fins, mouth tear or sometimes ramming plants. The teenagers show the display behavior already, sometimes against bigger males. Injuries do not occur.
The breeder I know that with him in a basin districts are formed and in another bowl rather the swarm formation is a priority. For me, both versions are shown.
With the young, it has already worked, now I have three times the number estimated. Counting is difficult because they never sit still. However, it seems at this number to stay far, for whatever reason. Since I had a while no dwarf Perlkraut and little moss in the aquarium and I'm not sure if they can spawn in the moss and / or dwarf Perlkraut may be due. Perhaps the adolescents eat the smallest easy to ...
Until the children look like their parents, it takes a while. At first, they are barely visible, there's no color. Then they turn slowly, so they look like little neon weeks.
At feed everything is now swallowed up what there is, whether from the water surface or descending, food - preferably they would eat constantly. If I Locke (I lure always with the same words), all swimming in an uproar around on the windscreen, even the shrimp will come forth.
Brushing Even before the disks and vacuuming no longer flee. Perhaps because the young has a role model, as these are not at all shy. Even the gardeners will been watching curiously, could even drop what to eat. Have seen how they have eaten by the algae scraped scraping the algae.
Really a nice lively little fish!
