Lemon Tetra med
Place of origin:Lake Tanganyika

Recommended tank size:240 Litres
Common name:Enantiopus Kilesa
Average adult fish size:15cm / 6 Inches
Scientific name:Enantiopus sp. Kilesa
Water chemistry:pH 7.6-8.6
Breeding:Mouthbrooders, the males will dig a pit by piling up sand in small perfectly laid out piles around the pit and perform the common cichlid shimmer and colour up to attract a suitable female.
Typical tank setup:Large rocky Tanganyika biotype tank with plenty of fine sand
Feeding:Brine shrimp, daphnia and cyclops. Also quality flakes and small pellets or grains can be fed. Avoid overfeeding, as this will cause diseases.
It is very common to find tetras with Corydoras as companions, as they are both quite peaceful and other tank mates like Guppies, other Tetras, Rasboras, Mollies & Platies
This tetra is generally peaceful but they are sometimes prone to fin nipping on some of their tank mates. Keeping them in a school of 6 or more may help alleviate this problem. This hardy, inexpensive fish is a welcome addition to many community tanks.
