More new fish, for smaller tanks

Our fellow member, renowned explorer Heiko Bleher, provides some information on new species of fish from South America that are suitable for smaller tanks. Including a species of Characidium, one of the most interesting and unique fish for the aquarium. Characidium fasciatum is in our profiles as this species is available from time to time, but Heiko shows us a new and colourful one.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Nice. I really like theCharacidium sp. 1 aff. declivirostre, looks a little like a loach-darter fish combo. Cute. Nice article, thanks for posting! I'd like to tag along with Heiko sometime, he has quite the fun adventuring about the planet.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
