The Flagtail Prochilodus has a wide distribution throughout the central and western portions of the Amazon river and its tributaries. This striking characin grows to an impressive size and will require a spacious aquarium from the outset. Although it can be safely housed alongside other medium-sized fish species (e.g. other characins of similar size, knifefish, L-number plecos, peaceful cichlids etc), it can be rather antagonistic towards its own kind, so is best kept singly or in a group of 6 or more so that any aggression is spread throughout the shoal.
