Flagtail Prochilodus

Flagtail Prochilodus

Scientific Name: Semaprochilodus insignis
Ease of Care: Easy
Approximate Arrival Size: 1.5 to 3 inches
Approximate Full Size: 12 inches
Native Region: South America
Temperament: Semi-Aggressive
Diet: Herbivore

This shoaling fish will do well in a large group of at least 7 fish, but if a smaller group of these fish are placed together then there may be aggression. Due to the adult size of this fish being in the one foot or larger adult size range when it matures, it will need to be kept only with other fish that get larger and are not overly aggressive such as Silver Dollars. The Flagtail Prochilodus is considered an omnivore but in the home aquarium it will be a feeder of opportunity, and will eat what it can find in the aquarium. For best results, an herbivore diet should be offered.
