Pseudomugil Luminatus (Red Neon Blue-eye)

Description:

The Pseudomugil Luminatus, commonly known as the Red Neon Blue-eye, is a captivating species celebrated for its striking blue eyes contrasted with fiery red fins. Originating from the clear waters and shaded streams of Papua New Guinea, these vibrant little fishes bring a burst of color and shimmer to any freshwater aquarium. Their lively demeanor, paired with their vivid appearance, makes them an alluring choice for hobbyists.

Features:

  • Stunning blue eyes that stand out dramatically
  • Brilliant red fins, particularly in males
  • Active and playful swimmers
  • Peaceful nature, suitable for community setups
  • Thrives best when kept in small groups

How to Keep:

The Red Neon Blue-eye favors aquariums with soft, slightly acidic to neutral water. While they can adapt to various conditions, a well-planted tank with ample hiding spots and open swimming areas is most ideal. A subdued current and a dimly lit or dappled lighting environment replicates their natural habitat. For the best visual display and to encourage natural behaviors, keep them in groups of 6 or more.
