Details

The Orange Chromide appears in light to dark shades of orange with small orange-red spots on the flanks. It is oval-shaped with a pointed mouth, looking similar to a Gold Severum.

This fish is peaceful, though in the wild it does prey on fish fry and other small organisms, so be sure you aren't keeping it with small species. It may also become territorial if breeding.

Feed a variety of foods including flake, small pellet, frozen, algae and other vegetable matter. Tank decor can consist of driftwood, roots, soft substrate, and plants. This species is a substrate spawner.
