Banded Leporinus - Leporinus fasciatus

The Banded Leporinus, also known as the Black-Banded Leporinus, has an exceptional ability to jump great heights making it one of the more unique aquarium species. An interesting feature of this fish is its striking color bands of alternating light yellow and black. Young Banded Leporinus' have five bands while adults have ten.
Roots, rocks, and driftwood make the best decorations for aquariums containing this species. The Banded Leporinus may eat tender plants. An avid jumper, this fish will require a hood on the aquarium. Although the Banded Leporinus may be somewhat aggressive towards its own species, it is usually quite peaceful with other species, though it may nip fins. Avoid smaller species of fish with the Banded Leporinus, as it may eat its tank mates.
