Glossolepis incisus


Glossolepis incisus

Glossolepis incisus

Belongs to the family Melanotaenidae (Rainbowfishes) and was first described by Weber in 1908. Originally found in New Guinea, Lake Sentani and nearby lakes. It is a peaceful schooling fish ideal for community tanks. Ideal for planted tanks since it won't harm the plants while its color makes a very nice contrast. Best kept in a school of at least 12 fish. The females have much less color and transparent fins are more elongated and have a yellow olive color. The males will change to this startling color after they reach a size of 5 cm (2"). The recommended water values are hard water (GH 18-25) and a neutral / slightly alkaline pH (7.0-7.5). It is easy to breed this fish. The fry is free swimming and should be fed baby food preparations. The fish when adult will reach a final size of 15 cm. Minimum tank size 80 cm. If you are planning to keep more than 10 of them you should opt for a tank size larger than 120 cm, although 150 cm is highly recommended.
