Description

Carnegiella myersi – Pygmy Hatchetfish

Carnegiella myersi or by its common name Pygmy Hatchetfish, is a peaceful schooling fish for the upper water layers.  In spite of his small length he needs a large aquarium.  The aquarium should be planted with some large plants that reach the surface so the fish could hide.  They like to swim against the stream so you need a strong filter.  Because they are very good jumpers it is necessary to cover the aquarium well.

Food

You should give them small live food like fruit flies or black mosquito larvae.  Small dry food is accepted as well.

Breeding

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
