This tiny fish is always active and moving around. It will eat just about any of the normal aquarium foods. As always small live foods are the best foods.
Neoheterandria is a livebearer and will soon populate the tank with lots of fry. The fry need very little special care, they will even grow and prosper on flake foods.
This is a perfect fish for the Tiny Tank.
