Nothobranchius fuscotaeniatus Kitonga North TAN 97-9 female.

Nothobranchius fuscotaeniatus Kitonga North TAN 97-9 female.

Quite an interesting notho, in a number of ways. It is certainly much shyer than other Nothobranchius. Whilst other nothos dance for your attention (and a possible feed), or show indifference, Nothobranchius fuscotaeniatus will always hide.

The green (unusual in itself) stripes (the literal translation of fusco - taeniatus is green striped) are also evident on the female, markedly morso than females of other species. Differentiating between females and subdominant males can get tricky, and is best done by looking for the more pointed anal fin of the female.

Like all Nothobranchius species a diet of livefoods is preferred
