Anostomus ternetzi are omnivorous feeders and will readily accept most aquarium foods. You can offer them flake food, algae wafers, as well as frozen tubifex and fresh zucchini, spinach, chopped shrimp, canned peas and green beans. Its helpful offer them hiding places which can be achieved using driftwood and plants.
 
The golden striped headstander, Anostomus tenetzi, has a very wide distribution in South America. It is recorded from Brazil, French Guyana, Guyana, Suriname, and Venezuela. The specimens on which the original description based, originated from Venezuela, and we were able to import them from there once more.
 
This beautiful fish is among the most peaceful species of headstander at all. It stays smaller than Anostomus anostomus. The latter can become more than 16 cm long, while A. ternetzi attains a maximum length of about 12 cm only.
 
In very young specimens of A. ternetzi the broad band along the body has wavy edges; it looks as if it would be composed of many, merged spots. Later these edges become straight in many specimens, but in others it stays wavy. Possibly this is a secondary sexual character. It is known from many species of fish that the female‘s pattern is more similar to the juvenile pattern than in males.
 
The shipment contained as an extremely rare bycatch one specimen of the only 2005 described species Pseudanos winterbottomi. This means that both species occur syntopically. P. winterbottomi can grow larger than 15 cm. The single specimen is sold already; we present it to you only due to its rarity.
 
For our customers: Anostomus ternetzi has code 206001 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
