Tucanoichthys tucano a perfect characid fish for a nano aquarium
Finally we are able to offer this tiny, very nice and extremely rare dwarf tetra once more. We have both wild collected and German bred ones in stock. This tiny little species attains a maximum length of around 2 cm and is therefore an ideal fish for nano aquaria. Tucanoichthys lives endemic in the upper Rio Negro basin, to be more precise in the Rio Uaupes. Fishes from that region should be kept in very soft, strongly acidic water (pH 5). The water should be colored brownish with humidic acids. Males have red in the caudal and anal fin, which is missing in females.
In dark aquaria the pastel, but shining colors of the fish are presented best. For our customers: the animals have code 298923 (wild) and 298933 (bred) on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
