Food and feeding

Wormline peckoltia should accept all foods offered so use a quality flake or pellets for the staple diet. They will relish treats of live or frozen foods, blood worms and brine shrimp are ideal, and if the fish are well fed they should not nibble at plants.


South America; Wormline peckoltia’s are to be found in Brazil and Guyana.


Mature males will develop teeth shaped spins on the top of their flanks and on the edge of the leading pectoral fins.


Wormline peckoltia’s are cave spawners and the male will do all of the parenting. He will guard the nest and the fry when they have hatched, the female will probably be driven away during this time. When the fry are free swimming they can be fed on Infusoria until they grow large enough to accept newly hatched brine shrimp.


The expected life span for Peckoltia braueri is 8-12 years.

Short description

Peckoltia braueri are classed as a peaceful species but can become territorial when mature. Add rocks and wood to create caves for them so that each fish can have its own area. They can be a timid species and will spend most of the daylight hours hiding.
