The Redfin Prochilodus requires an aquarium of 70 gallons or larger with a sandy bottom and plenty of hiding places provided by driftwood and rocks. They are generally peaceful, but may become territorial. Provide tank mates that are of similar size. Only incorporate plants of the hardy nature, as the Redfin Prochilodus is an herbivore and may eat any of the more delicate species.

Though omnivorous it’s primarily a herbivore. Offer plenty of vegetable matter in the form of blanched spinach, lettuce, cucumber, courgette, algae wafers and similar. It will also accept most good quality dried foods and small frozen fare such as bloodworm or [Daphnia.

Behaviour and Compatibility
It’s aggressive towards its own kind when kept in small numbers, but can be maintained in groups of six or more in larger tanks. Otherwise it’s best kept as a single specimen in a community of medium to large fish. Suitable tankmates include other large characins, Loricariids, Doradids, peaceful cichlids, knifefish, arowana and freshwater stingrays.
