Hyphessobrycon eos, Durbin,

Origin:West-Guyana

Etymology: Unk

Synonyms:Unk

First European import:Unk

Description:See picture, very similar to H. scholzei

Care: Hyphessobrycon eos can be kept in small and medium-sized tanks, or in community tanks. A group of 6 or more fish should be kept together in a shoal in a tank that provides hideouts as well as free swimming space. Usually the fish will inhabit the middle and upper regions of the tank, in the vicinity of large plantgroups, in which they immediately can hide in case of danger. Hyphessobrycon eos dislikes brightly lit areas and is best kept in tanks with temepered light, which can be accomplished by adding some floating plants. Tanned water, preferably peat filtered and slightly acidic, with a bit of current, is appreciated.

Temperature:Around 24 degrees

Feeding:Omnivorous, all (small)food is accepted

Size:Up to 4.5 cm

pH: 6.0-7.5

Breeding:Unknown

Sexual dimorphism:Females can be distinguished from the males by the larger belly if in breeding condition.

Prices: 2€

Additional: The fish are nowadays imported more often, and possibly also bred by commercial farms, but hasn't been bred for years in the beginning, which caused the fish to become extinct in aquaria over and over again.

Picture references:E. naus
