Epalzeorhynchos kalopterum... ( Read More )
Generally thrives in a set-up that is designed to resemble a flowing river with a substrate of variably-sized rocks, gravel and some larger, water-worn boulders, the flying fox or epalzeorhynchos kalopterum is a species that is relatively unfussy in terms of decor and should not harm softer-leaved plants.
While small specimens tend to hide away much of the time, they become increasingly territorial as they grow and can display particularly high-levels of aggression towards similar-looking species. This species probably lives a solitary lifestyle and in nature would probably have only come into contact with others of its own kind infrequently and during the spawning season.
