Fish Red Arc Pencilfish
Probably the most beautiful of the species of pencilfish, the Red Arc Pencil fish would be a great addition to any community tank containing small, peaceful fish. This newly described species of pencil fish is one of the most beautiful characins available today.</p>
The males and females are both very colorful but when the males are displaying to each other, their colors are incredible! Just like the Siamese Fighting Fish, the males can be tricked into displaying by the use of a mirror. They believe that their reflection is another male so they have to show off.
For now, the price remains high because only a relative few are collected in Peru but it has been tank spawned. It is hoped that commercial breeders will be able to mass produce them in the near future.
