Fundulopanchax gardneri


Fundulopanchax gardneri
Steel Blue Killi
蓝彩鱂鱼
This is a superb beginner's killifish being beautiful, easy to breed and relatively long-lived. It was formerly classed as Aphyosemion gardneri and indeed still is in much of the available literature. It is a member of the subgenus Paraphyosemion. There are many different colour variants in nature and several have been described as subspecies, including F. g. nigerianus, F. g. lacustris and F. g. mamfensis. Obviously, these should not be allowed to hybridise in aquaria and so should not be kept together, although aquarium care them all is virtually identical. 

Interestingly it appears that F. g. gardneri occurs as both an annual and non-annual fish. This adaptation allows it to inhabit many different habitats, as it's able to breed in both permananent and temporary bodies of water.


特性:篮彩鳉又称为GAR鳉,是多年生卵生鳉鱼,被培育出至少五种亚种及地方型。成鱼体长可达7公分,性情活泼好动,对于弱势的同种鱼较激烈的追赶情形。饲养上极为容易,属于适合新手入门饲养的鱼。只要喂食习惯,对于干燥或人工饲料的接受度颇高。繁殖时可用毛线或泥炭土作为产卵介质,孵化期约两个星期,依温度不同而略有变化。
