Abstract
This paper covers the ecological development of the major ornamental fish Paracheirodon axelrodi found in rain forest streams (almost "clear-water") in the region of the middle and upper Rio Negro. Limnochemical conditions in these extremely nutrient-poor waters during both the low and high water seasons over the spawning period, as well as breeding conditions in captivity, are described. A comparison is made between the very slow rate of growth and limited age reached as a result of a food deficiency in its natural habitat, and the potential growth if bred under optimum feeding conditions.
