Product Description

A selection of popular and compatible freshwater tropical fish for aquaria. All are active, easy to care for, and do well in community tanks. When selecting fish, look for species which do well in overlapping ranges of temperature and pH. 

Chinese Algae Eater (Gyrinocheilus aymonieri). Length: 4"-6". Tolerates varied water conditions. Excellent and diligent tank cleaners - supplement with leafy vegetables. 

MAINTENANCE: Basic water requirements and food preferences are listed below. Most will thrive on a good quality flake food. To supplement the diets of herbivores and algae eaters, blanch (briefly submerge in boiling water) pieces of dark, leafy green vegetables (spinach, greens, lettuce) and place them in the tank; anchoring them with small rocks or pieces of gravel.

During periods of severe cold weather, shipments of tropical fish may be delayed at our discretion. You will be notified and given a revised shipping date.
