Current Scientific Name:
Fundulus cingulatus
Described: Valenciennes, 1846
Common name(s):
Distribution: USA

This is a very lively fish, although somewhat shy. They are greedy eaters though, and this overpowers their shyness at feeding time. They enjoy all live, frozen and dry foods, and grow quickly, usually attaining 3 inches or so.

They must be covered at all times in the aquarium, as they are good jumpers.

Breeding Report: Fundulus cingulatus
Water conditions: Moderately hard and alkaline, 24-27oC
Spawning Method: Adult fish removed from tank
Breeding difficulty: Average
Success: Fairly successful
Other Comments: This is a beautiful Fundulus, with terrific orange finnage and a lovely blue eye. It is a bit shy, but a voracious eater. It will scoff down anything, dried, or live, including its own fry. Eggs are very large, and laid in mops and plants, but removing the adult fish and feeding the 'empty' tank artemia has been my preferred method, resulting in quick growing fry relatively quickly
