Dwarf Pencil Fish

The Dwarf or Marginatus Pencilfish is a colorful, small-growing species of pencilfish found throughout much of the Amazon basin and Guyana shield. Found in areas of warm, acidic, slow-moving water, they are well-suited for a peaceful community aquarium and are popular with aquascapers and planted tank hobbyists due to their color and interesting behavior. With their small adult size, they also make a great fish for nano aquariums as well. In the aquarium, they are relatively easy to care for, but care should be taken to ensure larger or faster moving tankmates don’t outcompete them for food.
