Roseline Shark Size

Roseline sharks, commonly known as "dither fish", typically reach four or five inches long and make for an eye-catching addition to any freshwater aquarium. With their swift movements and bright coloring, these hardy little guys often become known as "dither fish." Preferring water with pH between 6.5-7.5 for optimal conditions (dGH should range between 8-12), roseline sharks make an eye-catching and colorful addition that requires no hard or soft conditions; thus making for great tank inhabitants! They thrive even in tanks as large as 50 gallons and provide plenty of hiding places - making these hardy enough for survival! Hardy enough even for tanks as large as 50 gallons with plenty of hiding places - making these hardy marine inhabitants very hardy creatures. Very hardy indeed; can survive in tanks as large as 50 gallons with plenty of hiding places! These hardy survivors need not hard or soft water conditions (dGH range of 8-12).

As is true of most freshwater aquarium fish species, its best to simulate their natural habitat as much as possible in your tank. This means providing shelter from bright lights as well as maintaining highly oxygenated water by including plenty of rocks and dense vegetation as well as having a strong current to provide shade from harsh lights and increase oxygenation levels in the tank.

Frozen foods tend to provide more nutrition. Roseline sharks in nature eat aquatic insects, seaweed, and mosquito larvae. In captivity they tend to be omnivorous fish eaters; eating tropical flakes, pellets and live foods such as brine shrimp bloodworms daphnias pieces of fresh green algae are just a few examples of what these fish eat!

These stunning fish belong to the Cyprinidae family and earn their shark name due to a short red stripe on top of a longer black line that runs horizontally along their bodies. Native of Western India, where fast-flowing rivers and pools with thick vegetation host them; schooling fish that appreciate living alongside other sharks as part of an established shoal.

Passionate and knowledgeable aquartist. Aquariums have always fascinated me. I enjoy sharing and learning about the wonders of a fish tank.
