Fundulopanchax Gardneri albino

Origin: Africa

Temp: 68 – 77°F (20 – 25°C)

pH: 6 – 7.5 dH: Soft

Temperament: Something about the Albino gene makes this gardneri a lot more gentle and aggreeable than the regular Garneri. They can get along quite well. Though they do go through the usual flaring and displaying, they don’t get into any real fin tearing fights.

Adult Size: Up to 3 in (7.5cm)

Minimum Tank Size: 1 gallon to 2 1/2 gallon bowl for a trio

Feeding: Best results with live foods, but will accept frozen and flake food.

Breeding: A Switch Spawning Killifish, with about a 2 week incubation period in water and 3 weeks in moist peat.

Comments: Fundulopanchax Gardneri albino is a Switch Spawning Killifish from Africa. It gets to up to a little over 3 inches long (7.5cm). Will thrive in most normal aquarium conditions including temperatures from 68 to 77° F (20-25C) and any moderate pH and dH, but prefers soft and slightly acidic water for spawning. Albino gardneri will accept most aquarium foods including live, frozen and even some dry foods.

A pair or trio can be comfortably kept in a 2.5 gallon tank. Albino gardneri are somewhat more prolific than the normal colored gardneri, but the fry cannot be raised with the parents. My guess is that the albino fry are just too easy to find and eat.
