Spotted Headstander

Chilodus punctatus


One of my favorite characins, these unique fish have the neatest behavior. They move about the aquarium in a vertical orientation with their heads facing the ground, They spend the day moving about in groups, picking small food items off the substrate. This behavior, along with their attractive spotted pattern and bold black spot on their dorsal fin, result in a handsome fish that is endlessly fascinating to observe.

These fish are fairly slow movers and eaters, so it is best to keep them with fish that aren't boisterous and wont hog all the food quickly.

The fish for sale are in the 1.25" to 1.5" range from tip-to-tip. They grow to a maximum size of about 3".
