Larviculture of two neotropical species with different distributions in the water column in light- and dark-colored tanks

Abstract: The influence of tank color on the visual perception of fish larvae and the success of their cultivation depends on the characteristics of each species combined with environmental factors. In this study, we determined the effect of light and dark tank colors on the larviculture of pacamã (Lophiosilurus alexandri), a species with a benthonic habit, and curimatá-pioa (Prochilodus costatus), which swims actively in the water column. Larvae of pacamã and curimatá-pioa were cultivated for 10 days in 5-L tanks, at a… Show more

“…They reproduce naturally in experimental ponds where they build nest, shed sticky large eggs, and exhibit male parental care (Sato & Godinho, 1999;Sato et al, 2003). Pacamã larvae are adapted to low luminous habitats and are bottom-dwellers like the adults (Pedreira et al, 2012). Pacamã has been included in 2014 Brazilian red list in the category vulnerable due to population size reduction in, at least, 30% in the last three generations (Instituto Chico Mendes de Conservação da Biodiversidade (ICMBio), 2014).…”
