Nothobranchius guentheri
Guenther's Nothobranchius
红圆尾鱂鱼
Nothobranchius guentheri is endemic to Tanzania. Its natural habitats are intermittent rivers and intermittent freshwater marshes. The notho eats mosquito larvae. Scientists believe that if they introduce it in some of Africa's major bodies of water it can help prevent malaria. It will prevent malaria by decreasing the mosquito larvae in the lakes making less infectious mosquitoes. A stunning species which unfortunately is very short-lived, as it is an annual fish in nature. It is standard practice to add salt at a rate of 1 tsp per gallon to Nothobranchius aquariums as they are very susceptible to disease. This is one of the more adaptable Nothobranchius species and is recommended to the beginner as it is considered easily bred.

特性:红圆尾鳉被称为GUE鳉,是N属一年生的鳉鱼,体型较大,成鱼体长约有5到6公分。不论饲养或繁殖都相当容易。对于水质的要求不高,适合作为饲养鳉鱼的入门鱼种。繁殖时可以泥炭土作为产卵介质,一对种鱼在一星期内约可产下近百颗卵。此外,GUE鳉的母鱼体型略小,对同缸中其他同种的公鱼略带攻击性,混养时需要注意。
