Red-Spotted Copeina

Red-Spotted Copeina

By Gary Bolton

Family: Lebiasinidae

Species: Copeina guttata

Size: 15cm (6 inch)

Diet: Omnivorous

Tank levels: Upper and middle

Habitat: Streams and rivers of central Amazonia

Remarks: This species is relatively easy to keep and breeds readily. Eggs are laid in a hollow and guarded by the male. If you want to breen fish this is an interesting one to try.

Comments: The body of this species features a green-brown dorsal surface with darker flanks, and a light yellowish ventral surface. Each large scale has a red marking at its forward apex, giving the fish the spotted appearance which is reflected in its common name. Nice fish fish to keep and own, which is great to watch at night.


This fish comes from the “Tropical Fish” family species of fish. I hope you enjoyed this fish profile that I put together to help people to choose the right fish for the right aquarium tank setup you may own, or be thinking of buying in the future.
