Ammocryptocharax elegans become camouflage brown when not on plants

There is probably no other species of freshwater fish that has such a bilious green coloration as it is shown by the 4-5 cm long ground characin Ammocryptocharax elegans. We were able to import a few specimens from Brazil. However, one should know that these fish can change their coloration very fast and in case the fish are concerned they can become camouflage brown in a glimpse. One should keep these fish in planted aquaria, for field studies showed that they have their green colors only when they can sit on submerged plants.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 203753 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
