Interuptus 4-6cm

Interruptus males are dark blue with a hint of light blue horizontal bars. The famales are yellow/orange.  Interruptus is a species that is very similar to the Johanni and unfortunately sometimes can be mistakenly sold as one. The main distinction between the two is that johanni exhibit very straight unbroken stripes, whereas the interruptus has broken (checkerboard like) stripes.

These fish are Agrressive, yet easy to keep and are a hardy fish.  They are classed as an omnivore, which means they like spitulina type foods.

The interuptus is a prolific mouth brooder
