A Fish with Extraordinary Breeding Behavior.

The “Splashing Tetra”, “Copeina arnoldi”, is like many of the more peaceful tetras to keep, but its breeding behavior is extraordinary. This is described near the end of this article.

This lovely fish comes from South America, including the lower Amazon and Paru rivers. It grows to a length of about 3 inches (7 cm) and will live for 3 years.

Other common names it has been called include “Splash Tetra”, “Jumping Characin”, “Spraying Tetra”, “Arnolds Splashing Tetra” and “Spraying Characin”. Some other scientific names that have been used for this fish are “Copeina arnoldi”, “Copeina callolepis”, “Copeina eigenmanni”, “Pyrrhulina filamentosa” and “Pyrrhulina rachoviana”.

Water Conditions

The Splashing Tetra’s natural habitat is warm tropical. Unlike some of the fish of the upper Amazon which is sometimes fed by melted show and can have some temperature drop, the Splashing Tetra’s cannot take lower temperatures very well. The Splashing Tetra can take the 24 degrees C (75 degrees F) I usually recommend for a mixed tank of tropicals, but this is the lowest temperature I would suggest for this fish.

Neutral Ph is suitable, and a moderate amount of hardness does not seem to harm this fish.

Food

The preferred food of the Splashing Tetra is small live food, including aquatic insect larvae and Daphnia. They will also eat most normal aquarium fish foods and frozen bloodworms.

Companions

The Splashing Tetra is happy with other small peaceful fish like Neon Tetras, Cardinal Tetras, Green Neon Tetras, White Cloud Mountain Minnows, Cherry Barbs, Penguin Tetras, Pristella Tetras and Glowlight Tetras. They would probably also be OK with Siamese Fighting Fish.

I would be a little more cautious about putting them with slightly more aggressive fish like Red Eye Tetras, Silvertip Tetras, Gold Barbs, Rummy Nose Tetras, Scissortail Rasboras, Lemon Tetras, Emperor Tetras, Head and Tail Light Tetras, Glass Bloodfin Tetras, Swordtails, Platies, Mollies, Zebra Danios, Black Widow Tetras, Rosy Barbs, Tiger Barbs, Paraguay Tetras, Buenos Aires Tetras Colombian Tetras; although these may well be all right with Splashing Tetras.

Sexing

The males grow a little bigger than the females. The female, when in breeding condition, is plumper than the males. Some people believe they can see the actual eggs inside a female with eggs although I have never actually seen this myself.

Breeding

The Breeding behavior of the Splashing Tetra is extraordinary. They do not even lay the eggs in the water. A pair of Splashing Tetras will be together underneath vegetation which has a leaf a few centimeters above the water surface. Once they are ready they will jump onto the leaf, holding on for a few seconds. The female lays some eggs while the male fertilizes them. The fish drop off. This is repeated until the female has laid all her eggs. This could be up to 200 although it is usually less.

The male chases the female away; and for the next day and a half he regularly splashes the eggs on the leaf, keeping them moist. The eggs hatch and the babies are washed off by the splashing and quickly find hiding places amongst the plants in the water.

The babies are small and will eat infusoria (protozoa) at first. A good supply of small live foods is a major factor in successfully raising the babies.

If you can set up the rather specialized breeding tank, with plenty of plants, including ones with good sized leaves out of the water, this fish is a ready breeder.

Hoa Lu ancient Capital never makes both of inhabitants and tourists surprising as this Tet festival. The whole city is full of flags, flowers and lanterns creating a sparkling scene together with lively atmosphere which rarely existed in quiet city -Ninh Binh before.

The lively atmosphere of New Year seems to awaken this tranquil life on each far narrow alley and each family. The nightlife in Ho Lu ancient town becomes more and more great and colorful. Especially along the main streets typically like Đinh Tiên Hoàng, Tràng An, Lê Hồng Phong, the darkness is broken only by lanterns in all manner of shapes and sizes. Take Vietnam travel foreign visitors seem are walking into a fairytale when going for a stroll through these lantern streets. Many kinds of blinking lamps, wire line in every innumerous color associated to the red flag with yellow star, hammer and sickle symbolize to welcome the 1000 year anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi specifically.

On 1km road of Quarter 4, hundreds of lanterns in all of manner of small and big sizes and colorful electricity seem to hold all roofs, which makes capital’s atmosphere become lively.

Mrs Nguyen Thi Kim at the age of 80 – a long-standing inhabitant on the 4th Quarter, Van Giang Ward said eagerly “I was born, grew up here, yet I have never seen the whole city decorated as beautifully as this year in Tet festival.

Passion for lamps this year went up, which formed lantern markets in many areas.  From 10 p.m, the lantern or decorative markets on Van Giang Street were still lively together with air of sales still were in busty.

Ms. Phuong, a salesperson added, despite higher prices than last year, all manner of lanterns were sold out. Influx of visitors into flower market seems to come here not only to buy flowers at midnight but also to feel and enjoy the air of spring coming soon.

Springs is the season of hope, i really love to get out of city to travel some peace full un touch regions where is still preserved authentic traditional culture, to enjoy their festival and taking beautiful moment of life. Perhaps of that reason i got a job as production and marketing excutive for one of great vietnam travel agent. My job have to travel alot for trip inspection such as  vietnam hotels inspection and inspect Halong bay cruise too. i really love a say from one of my spanish friend ” it dosen’t matter how is our life last which how do we enjoy our life” if you travel to vietnam during Tet time, let come to Hoa Lu, and Trang An it is definitely beautiful place in northern of Vietnam.

The Head and Tail Light Tetra, Hemigrammus ocellifer, is a beautiful, hardy and peaceful fish. It come from slow moving waters in the Amazon system, but it is not a slow moving fish. The common names The Head and Tail Light Tetra as well as the variations listed next were given because of the bright pinkish spot round its eye and another one near its tail. Other names for This fis are Beacon Fish, Beacon Tetra, The Head and Tail Light Fish and The Head and Taillight Tetra.

The Head and Tail Light Tetra is a moderately long lived fish, and will sometimes live up to 10 years, although the average is less than this.

Temperature and Water
The Head and Tail Light Tetra is a tropical fish unsuitable for unheated aquariums in temperate areas unless they are in a room that is heated all the time. A thermostat setting in the water of 24degrees C (75 degrees F) is suitable. The ideal water is soft and slightly acid (pH of about 6.8) but it also does well in slightly harder water that is a little alkaline. For a mixed tank of tropical fish, I suggest a pH of 7 (Neutral) with a temperature of 24degrees C (75 degrees F).

The Head and Tail Light Tetra does better in a well planted tank.

As with all fish, it is important to remove any Chlorine or Chloramine in the water before the fish are put in.

Companions
The Head and Tail Light Tetra is a schooling fish, and I regard six as a minimum suitable number. Other fish that it is compatible with include the other Tetras, including Neon Tetras, Cardinal Tetras, Black Widow Tetras, Emperor Tetras and Glass Bloodfin Tetras. As well the other tetras, it is compatible with the Danios, White Cloud Mountain Minnows, Guppies, Endlers Guppies, Rasboras, and most barbs, as well as other small fish which are not excessively aggressive.

It is also happy with the Corydoras catfish, including Peppered Catfish, and with all the smaller loaches.

Breeding
The Head and Tail Light Tetra is an easy fish to breed and will occasionally produce young in a community tank that is not too crowded with fish, and is well planted.

If you deliberately want to breed, condition the fish well first, including rich foods and live food if possible. Wrigglers, bloodworms and Daphnia are excellent live foods, but frozen foods, including frozen bloodworms can be used. A separate tank is necessary. Soft, slightly acid water is ideal and a small rise in temperature will often stimulate breeding. After spawning, remove the parents, and keep the tank in subdued light. Hatching of the eggs is fast; it takes between half a day and two days. The babies are slightly bigger than many tetra babies, and will eat the smallest size daphnia or brine shrimp quite soon.
