Maximum size: Male: 12.0 cm, Female: 15.0 cm
Origin: Southeast Asia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia
Zone of life: melts
life expectancy: Up to 16 years
Temperature and pH: 23°- 28° and pH:ranging between 5.5 to 7.0
Omnivore it adores the worms of vase and other small preys and needs a regular vegetable contribution.
The dry food is well accepted but must run quickly to escape voracity from faster fish.
Anatomy: Yellow body anguilliforme of dress with 6 to 10 black bands which cover all the body except the lower part. The shape of these bands is variable and defined also certain subspecies. Have barbillons as of a small needle placed under the eyes (attention with a net!)
Behaviour: Gregarious species, to maintain in groups of 6 individuals strict minimum (ten or more remains preferable all the same for their wellbeing.)
Subject with very marked timidity if it misses congénaires or lives in a “naked” vat too much.
This fish will require a decoration rich in hiding-places.
Dimorphism: The females are larger and taller than the males and have ovules green in the belly. The male generally has a black spot on the front fins.
Reproduction: Some reproductions out of aquarium (best, an aquarium of hundreds of litres with plants of surfaces). Often due to a change of atmospheric pressure. One can also cause the reproduction by adding a broyat carp pituitary gland when the female khuli is ripe, which normally causes the reproduction. The partners swim side against side in all the aquarium, then they go up and go down violently against the pane. Then, the female lay eggs on the plants. The alevins must be nourished with microphone-towards and of the crushed spangles.
The Council for the aquariophilie: Must be maintained in a minimum litrage of 100L (80-100cm of frontage), which will offer a sufficient space of stroke to him.
