Fish - Green Neon Tetra - (Paracheirodon simulans)

4 12

Synonyms
Hyphessobrycon simulans
Classification
Order: Characiformes Family: Characidae
Distribution
Known from the middle-to-upper rio Negro drainage, Brazil upstream of the mouth of its principal tributary the rio Branco, plus the Río Orinoco system in the border region of Venezuela and Colombia, between San Fernando de Atabapo and the mouth of the Río Meta.
Type locality was originally given as ‘Rio Purus, Manaus, Brazil’ but this was later corrected to the rio Jufaris, an affluent of the rio Negro located just upstream of the latter’s confluence with the rio Branco in Amazonas state, Brazil.
Habitat
Unlike its congeners P. innesi and P. axelrodi this species is an exclusive inhabitant of blackwater environments and tends to be found only in the upper, terra firme, reaches of tributary drainages.
Such habitats typically contain slow to moderately-flowing water with thick, often overhanging, riparian vegetation and sandy substrates covered in fallen branches, tree roots and leaf litter.
The water is typically acidic, of negligible carbonate hardness and conductivity and stained brownish due to the presence of humic substances released by decomposing organic matter.
Although it occurs over a similar range to P. axelrodi the two are not found together and P. simulans also tends to occur in warmer waters.
Maximum Standard Length
15 – 25 mm.
Aquarium Size
An aquarium with base dimensions of 45 ∗ 30 cm or larger is recommended.
