The ‘beacons’ or ‘head and tail lights’ are so named simply because the eye and top of the tail root reflect a bright orange, and look as if they’re jewels worn for some unique occasion. The body colouring is a pale greenish-brown, with an indistinct brown line running the length of the body. The males have a faint white mark in the centre of the anal fin. Breeding is by the standard technique at a temperature of 76°F.
For Gharacins they’re fairly simple to breed and are a great species for the new breeder.
