Click here to read unsolicited comments from customers about the fish that they've bought from us. 

Comments: Headstanders are good aquarium fish. They are very hardy and usually have interesting patterns, plus they swimming around with their heads pointed down.

Origin: Headstanders are caught by skillful fish collectors in South America and so are wild fish. But they now live in aquariums all over the world.

Compatibility: Some recommended tankmates include Corydoras Catfish, Silver Dollars, Pictus Catfish, and Plecostomus.

These fish should not be housed with aggressive Cichlids and other large aggressive tankmates.

Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: Headstanders live best from about 70 to 80-degrees F. with 78 being perhaps ideal.

Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Pellets is best to feed to Head Stander.

Small size pellet food when they're young, and larger sized pellets when they're large, is the ideal food for these fish.

Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: They are used to lower pH soft water, but these fish can adapt to most types of water, and so as usual it's best not to try to change the pH or alkalinity.

Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: Headstanders will do fine in an aquarium with at least 30-gallons of water when they're small, but will eventually need to live in an aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water.

Decor: Headstanders do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water.

Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live plants are beautiful and improve the water quality.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. Most 50-gallon aquariums have room along the back for two Penguin 350B Filters, and this is sort of a minimal wild fish set up.

Better is a 80, 100, or 120-gallon aquarium with as many Penguin 350B Filters as will fit across the back.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range.

Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: Headstanders can live for several years.

Keep the water conditions excellent and feed them premium foods, and they may live even longer lives.

Gender: Females are normally deeper-bodied than males.

Breeding: There are no known reports of this wild fish breeding in captivity.

Click here for a lot more about breeding various tropical fish in aquariums.

Popularity: These fish are somewhat popular in the hobby.

Variations: There are several species of Headstanders and each species seems to occur across a wide region in northern South America, and so it's very likely that there are variations of each species.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.
