Purple Spot Gudgeon

The Purple Spot Gudgeon is not fussy about temperature. Tank temperatures in the range of 15-30c are acceptable, with a preference between 23-28c. They will eat most aquarium food, but can't be trusted with small fish that fit in their mouth, such as neon tetras. Otherwise, they are an ideal community fish, with a peaceful disposition. They are expert at jumping out of aquariums, particularly from the corners of tanks. Therefore it is advisable to close any openings that they may jump from. A small plastic bag stuffed into any gaps at the corners of a tank will reduce the risk of finding your purple spot on the floor in the morning.
