Beckford Pencilfish 2-2.5cm (Nannostomus beckfordi)

Description

 

The Beckford's pencilfish, also known as Nannostomus beckfordi, or Golden Pencil Tetra is a beautiful species of freshwater fish that is popular among aquarists. Temperature: Beckford's pencilfish prefer tropical temperatures that range between 73°F to 82°F (23°C to 28°C). Maintaining the water within this temperature range is crucial for their health and well-being.

  1. Minimum Tank Size: To keep Beckford's pencilfish in a suitable environment, it is recommended to have a tank with a minimum capacity of 20 gallons (75 liters). This provides them with enough space to swim and explore. However, it's important to note that having a larger tank can be beneficial, as it allows for better water quality maintenance and creates a more natural environment for the fish.

In terms of their behavior, Beckford's pencilfish are generally peaceful and can be kept in a community tank with other small, non-aggressive fish species. They prefer a well-planted tank with subdued lighting and ample hiding spots, such as driftwood or rocks. Additionally, maintaining good water quality through regular water changes and a proper filtration system is essential for their overall health and longevity.
