The Celebes Half Beak is a peaceful live- bearing omnivore that is also a very active schooling fish that is fun to watch. You will want to stock these fish in numbers for best results. The Half Beak belongs to the Hemirhamphidae family. Males of this species have very colorful fins and a black lobe on the lower jaw. Females have less color in the fins and have a red or uncolored lobe. A community aquarium with plants, rocks, caves, and driftwood is well-suited for this fish. A small school should be kept with other peaceful fish of similar size. Nomorhamphus liemi breeds in shallow, soft, slightly acidic water. After a gestation period of about six to eight weeks, roughly ten, 3/4-inch fry are born. Small pieces of live food or infusoria should be fed to the fry. The Celebes Half Beak should be fed live foods, frozen foods, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as high quality flake foods.
