freshwater fish - barbus denisonii - denison barb stocking in 210 gallons tank - The Denison Barb, also known as the Red Lined Torpedo Barb or the Rose Line Shark, is a longer fish when compared to the other barbs. The coloration of this fish is silver in color with a black line running the length of its body and a red stripe across its eyes. It also has a red edge on its dorsal fin and yellow and black accents on the end of its tail. Unlike some of the other barbs, this is a peaceful fish that is a welcome addition to any larger community aquarium. They should be kept in groups in an aquarium with a tight fitting lid, as they have a tendency to jump. In nature, they are found in fast moving streams and appreciate a high oxygen level in aquarium water. The Denison Barb needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.
freshwater fish - ctenopoma acutirostre - leopard ctenopoma stocking in 210 gallons tank - The Leopard Ctenopoma, also known as the Spotted Climbing Perch, is part of the Bush Fish group of the family Anabantidae. These "climbing fish" are patient predators often remaining still among plants waiting for food to pass by. The Leopard Ctenopoma is one of the more colorful species of the Ctenopoma genus. The Leopard Ctenopoma requires a densely planted aquarium with roots and driftwood in which to hide. Somewhat aggressive, this fish should be kept with other fish of similar size. Ctenopoma acutirostre is a bubble-nest builder. Slightly acidic (pH 6.5-7.0), very soft (dH 2-4), and warm water (79-82°F) is necessary for breeding. The fry should be fed live food such as brine shrimp. Carnivores, Leopard Ctenopomas will eat live, frozen, and prepared foods such as krill or ocean plankton, as well as floating pellet food.
