Just wondering and i cant find much thru Google on how long these fish live for??

Also how long do they breed for etc once they reach sexual maturity of 2 years??

Is there a difference between the different types of altos like Calvus, fire fins, gold heads, golds etc or are they the same??

thanks in advance

Hi Jason,

I cannot answer 100% on life span but I have had some adult altos for about 8 years and still going strong. The breeding has kept up over this period.

When you say difference, not sure what you mean. Alto. calvus and Alto. compressiceps are different; then the different variants in calvus, black, white, yellow are the same just different colouration and compressiceps, gold, gold head, firef in, Kigoma etc etc are same fish different colouration/patterning. Same diet and requirements, breeding etc.
