Butterfly GoodeidAmeca splendens
The Butterfly Goodeid is an unusual little fish which has become more popular in recent years. Although it is often described as peaceful, males can fight and cause damage, and the fish may be nippy towards others. The fish is therefore best mixed with other small to medium sized robust fishes. A varied diet, including some vegetable matter, is essential for good health and body shape.
