In the wild, the Pinktail Chalceus are found in highly-oxygenated rivers in South America. They are known to leap from the water to catch insects, so an aquarium with a tight-fitting lid is essential to keep this escape artist in healthy captivity. The Pinktail Chalceus can tolerate a wide range of water parameters, but thrive best as individuals in 55 gallon or larger aggressive aquariums with excellent filtration and water movement.
The Pinktail Chalceus will take all types of live food as well as frozen, flakes, and pellets.
