Additional Comments

When kept in a school, Blue-eye males put on elaborate fin displays to impress females and to outshine rival males.Best kept in planted aquaria. The population from the Harvey Creek (near Innisfail) is larger and more active than most Pacific Blue-eyes, it appreciates plenty of swimming room and good water flow.
