Aplocheilus lineatus


Aplocheilus lineatus
Striped Panchax
条纹金龙鱂鱼
An elongate fish with a slightly upturned snout. The back is olive brown to bronze-brown, and the flanks are bronze to dark forest green in colour. Alternating scales are yellow-gold in colour giving the fish an attractive appearance. These yellow scales continues ant the anal, caudal, and dorsal fins, which are bronze in colour. The jaw and frontal belly regions are yellowish white and the iris of the eye may be green. Nine dark, transverse stripes mark the body of juveniles and mature females. At least two variants are common to the hobby: one with a fully red tail, and the other with the majority of the caudal fin is red, and the outer lobes are white. The anal and dorsal fins are yellow. The popular golden form of this fish is the one commonly sold as "golden wonder panchax". This is not a naturally-occuring morph having been selectively bred for the hobby. There is also a red strain and a couple of type locality forms available. Some of these are sold as striped panchax or sparkling panchax. 

Unlike many other killifish species, it's usually found in bodies of permanent water and is not an annual species. It's used in its native countries as a form of biological mosquito control.

黄金鳉,因为黄金鳉是水族市场上除了蓝眼灯之外,价钱最平实、在各水族馆的曝光率最高、同时也广受世界各地观赏鱼爱好者青睐的鳉鱼了。黄金鳉成鱼体长可达十公分的LIN鳉原产于亚洲的印度与斯里兰卡,身体呈现饱满的金黄色泽,从眼睛后方延伸至各鳍,并在鳍上反射出略带黄绿色的光泽。各不成对鳍(背鳍、臀鳍与尾鳍)末端的红色色框终止了刺眼金黄色泽的无限漫延,让黄金型LIN鳉显得更为可人。
  日常管理
  LIN鳉是一种人工饲养照顾上几乎可以完全不用担心的鳉鱼。饲养的环境布置上,建议以密植水生植物、沉木为佳,因为LIN鳉不算是温和的鳉鱼,因此适当的隐密处可以提供较为弱势鱼只作为躲避藏匿之处。由于LIN鳉的仔鱼成长速度很快,且成鱼体型较大,因此在饲养时所用的鱼缸大小建议越大越好。水质方面,原则上是属于pH中性的水质,但是不论是稍微偏碱、或稍微偏酸的水都还是可以接受。虽然原产地的温度约为摄氏二十二度到二十五度,但是也可以忍耐高于摄氏三十度以上的高温。
  别小看黄金鳉的嘴,虽然看上去扁平不算大,但实际上能够张开呈正方形,而并非类似鸭嘴一样的扁形。未成年的黄金鳉吞食红绿灯并不罕见,建议与相对凶猛并且体形稍大的小型鱼饲养,比如虎皮、扯旗之流。
