Fish Longnose Distichodus
Product Code : 024
Brand Name : Fresh Water
Fish Longnose Distichodus likes their close relative the Sixbar Distichodus Distichodus sexfasciatus, the Longsnout Distichodus have vertical bars on their flanks and bright red fins. They are actually very similar, but can easily be distinguished by their noticeably longer snout.
This is a very easy fish to keep but because of their potential to grow to 15 inches, they require a large aquarium. A juvenile Longsnout Distichodus will need at least 40 gallons, and as they mature a 55 gallon tank will be minimum. They are primarily herbivorous and will each aquarium plants. Their temperament with tank mates is unpredictable. Some will be peaceful and co-habitat well with similar sized occupants, while others will get ornery. Keeping them in schools is ideal and helps lesson aggressive behavior.
