Ternetz’s Anostomus

Ternetz’s Anostomus

By Gary Bolton

Family: Anostomidae

Species: Anostomus termetzi

Size: 16cm (6 one quarter inch)

Diet: Omnivorous

Tank levels: All

Habitat: Streams and rivers of the Orinoco and Amazon systems

Remarks: This fish requires green food and lots of space.

Comments: This fish’s yellow-gold body is marked by three dark bands. The head is flattened, with a long, tapered snout, and the upturned mouth has a red tip. The caudal fin contains yellow, and is red around the caudal peduncle. The small adipose fin may also contain red. This is a large sized fish and as such, care should be taken when added other small species of fish to you aquarium. Not a species for the novice.


This fish comes from the “Tropical Fish” family species of fish.
