Hemirhamphodon Kuekenthali

These 3 spot forest Halfbeaks known as Hemirhamphodon Kuekenthali (Steindachner 1901) are live bearers that range from slightly brackish waters to freshwater hill streams of Sarawak. Surface fishes, they adapt readily to micropellet food but enjoys small live insects. They are able to adapt to wide range of water conditions but proper acclimatizing is nevertheless required (pH range from 5.5 to 7.5, soft to medium kH, temperature 25C). Our stock originates from mountainous streams, obtained through a program for eradication of poverty by empowering the villagers over the area though social enterprise development.
