Mesonauta festivus (festivums)


Recommended Posts

hi guys, i am unsure of what size tank would be best to house maybe 4 of these fish and then possibly the 2 once they have paired off. Was wondering of what u guys think and any other valubale info u may have.

much apreciated

Hi Lee -

I suspect a large 2' (ie: 18" deep) would even be plenty for a pair.

I spawned them quite a few years ago now in a heavily planted tank. They spawned on an Anubias leaf (the water was not particularly soft) but was acidic and peat filtered.

They are mean spirited fish when they spawn so heterospecifics beware!!
