Misc Amazon Fish ===
This is for all the misc Amazon fish that I like such as the
Arapaima Gigas, Golden Dorado, and Flagtail Prochilodus (Fei Feng) to
name a few.
=== Arapaima Gigas ===
The Arapaima Gigas is one of the worlds largest
freshwater fish. They can reach sizes of 8ft+ in thw wild and over
400lbs! These guys grow between 2-3" a month when juveniles making them
able to outgrow even the biggest of aquariums in a very short period of
time and after about 2 years are already 4ft or more in length.
== Golden Dorado ===
The golden dorado has a reputation for being one of the toughest and
meanest aquarium predatory fish out there. They can grow to close to
3ft in length and inhabitt the white water regions of the amazon river.
=== Flagtail Prochilodus (Fei
The Fei Feng is a algae eater primarily and is very
passive with its tank mates except with other Fei Fengs where they will
fight constantly usually until only one is left. They do however
provide a problem to slower moving tnak mates that are much larger
because they have been known to eat the slime coat off the fish which
eventually leads to death of the larger fish.
