Distichodus lusosso


Distichodus lusosso
Long Snout Distichodus
长鼻六间鱼
One of only a handful of Distichodus seen with any regularity in the hobby. This species is undeniable attractive when juvenile, but unfortunately loses much of its colour and patterning as it matures. It is superficially similar to the more commonly seen D. sexfasciatus but has a much smaller adult size and a narrow, pointed head.
体椭圆型,背部具一小脂鳍。吻部较尖稍向下延长,背部稍高,幼鱼期时,体色呈金褐色,体侧具七条间距相等且延伸至腹部的黑色横纹,头部下半部呈银色,各鳍为浅红色,尤以尾鳍的颜色最深。成鱼则全身成暗灰黑色。最大体长可达38公分。属于中底栖性之热带淡水鱼类,草食性。游泳能力佳。主要分布在赤道非洲的刚果河流域的溪流和河流中。
