Other fish for the aquarium
With a fish aquarium, which is suitably furnished, with roots and stones and also with plants has a beautiful structure, you basically do everything right in the apartment. It is a resting point and offers the eye a green recreation point. Here you buy fish in the online store, which do not fit into any other group and are therefore listed in this category.
The Rainbow Minnow, which you can buy at Garnelio in the store, is suitable both for the garden pond and for the planted cold-water aquarium. They should not be kept permanently above 22 degrees, because they come from a temperate climate and therefore do not tolerate high temperatures all the time. The peaceful group fishes fascinate particularly by the courtship coloration of the males, which then get turquoise-blue glittering scales. The peaceful, very social fish play with each other and should therefore never be kept alone. As omnivores you can feed them perfectly with our high quality NatureHolic main feed. Breeding in the aquarium is possible and also relatively easy. The spawning tank should be lined with thick pebbles, between which the eggs will fall after spawning. This will prevent the parent fish from immediately predating the spawn. For breeding, the parent fish are caught out so that they do not feed the larvae as well.
Fringe lippers - including such well-known representatives as the intense red-black firetail, the green fringe lipper with its bright red fins or its golden form have a very bad reputation in aquaristics as poor aggressors, which also attack other aquarium fish and are very antisocial - however, this is due to the fact that the beautiful ornamental fish are then kept totally wrong. In single keeping the Fringe Lipper actually develops formal behavioral disorders and at some point attacks everything that moves. However, if kept in a well structured aquarium with a suitable size from 120 cm edge length in a group of 5-10 animals, the fish can live out their aggressions on their conspecifics, form a pecking order and show their natural behaviors. Then they are beautiful and relatively peaceful algae eaters, which are useful in the aquarium and only pleasantly noticeable. Breeding of the cave breeder is possible, but rather difficult. Fringe lippers are omnivores with a clear emphasis on growth food. Besides NatureHolic main feed NatureHolic catfish sticks and algae plates are especially suitable, but also frozen food and live food.
The night-black Whiteface Knifefish from South America are great fish for a South America aquarium with rather large by-fish from 180 cm edge length. In well planted tanks a small group of the Black Ghost can be kept perfectly. The swimming style of the knifefish is very unusual, they are extremely maneuverable and can not only swim forward, but even sideways, upside down, upside down and backwards. This makes them agile and very skilled hunters, which is why they should not be socialized with smaller fish or invertebrates. However, knifefish get along very well with large tetras, for example. They need rather soft water. In the aquarium, uncontrolled reproduction does not occur. In the age knife fish become territorial and incompatible and should then be kept alone in any case. This is already possible from a size of 15 cm. Knifefish become trusting and know their owner. They like to eat large live food and can also be accustomed to frozen food. They are also known as Manatee Knifefish, Black Ghost Knifefish, American Knifefish or American Whiteface Knifefish.
