(Clypeobarbus congicus)

Common names:
Congo Barb.

pH: 6.0 – 7.0

Tempº: 22ºC - 26ºC

Tank region: Middle Bottom layer

Origin: Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Gender: Males are more brightly coloured.

Notes: This species is rather unusual in the Aquatic Trade. It can be exceedingly shy when introduced to the Aquarium, so it is important to give it ample plant cover and lots of caves. They are a schooling species, and are quite peaceful.

They are suitable for a community of other small, shy species but should not be housed with overly aggressive fish. The species in omnivorous, and will accept commercially prepared foods.

New phones these days take HUGE sized photos. The original huge size photo is completely unnecessary for forum posting and they can really slow down the browsing experience. Luckily, photos attached to posts are resized automatically to 1200 pixels by the forum software depending on the orientation of the photo. This saves bandwidth, storage space and your data plan.
