Feather Fin (Hemigrammus Unilineatus)

Feather Fin (Hemigrammus Unilineatus)

The feather fin is effortlessly recognised by the anal fin marking; this marking takes the form of a black and white line down the front edge. The caudal fin is faintly coloured a reddish-brown. The body is mainly silver.

This is a great fish for the community tank as it is peaceful and simple to feed. It is also fairly a hardy fish, with a temperature range between 68° to 85°F. The breeding temperature is about 76°F.

Breeding is almost the exact same as for Hyphessobrycon flammeus, but not fairly so challenging to induce. The young, being slightly larger, don't need their initial foods so minute.
