黄帆船倒钩






























Oreichthys cosuatis is a small cyprinid fish found in India and Bangladesh. It is also reported from Thailand and Myanmar, but these are not confirmed to be the same species.
They are strictly freshwater, and are found in ditches, ponds, streams and canals .
In an aquarium, they are generally peaceful, and tend not to bother other fishes, even those much smaller than they are. They prefer cooler water, although higher temps are tolerated in the short term providing oxygen levels do not drop. Small, peaceful schooling fish that is rather shy. You should keep them in a special, small aquarium together with some small catfishes. You should plant the aquarium densely on the sides and background. A dark substrate is appreciated.

黄帆船倒钩,主要栖息于沟渠、池塘、小型溪流等水域,最大体长约8公分,属于中型的鲤科鱼,主要以蠕虫、小型水中无脊动物及动植物的碎屑为食,属于杂食性,饲育容易,但对水质激烈变化的抵抗力较低。霓虹蓝臀帆船鲫拥有较其他同科属观赏鱼宽大且飘长的背鳍,并由下往上逐渐散出一片鲜艳的黄色,其间还布有细密的黑点,在上端处又抹了一缘墨迹,相当具有特色,尾柄处则另有一个较大的黑色斑点,开口偏低的口器与高耸的背部。。
