Silver Prochilodus – Semaprochilodus Taeniurus


The Silver Prochilodus, scientifically know as Semaprochilodus Taeniurus are known to be territorial with its own kind but relatively harmless to other fish. For more information see the description section below.

Come down to Wholesale Tropicals in Bethnal Green to see our fantastic fish stock.



The Silver Prochilodus require an aquarium of a good size that is decorated with plenty of plants (plastic) that also includes plenty of hiding places. They can be aggressive and territorial with their own kind and so it is best they are kept on as a single fish of their species or as a group of 6 or more to disperse aggression. Otherwise, they are relatively placid with other fish of a similar size.

Be sure to provide Silver Prochilodus with plenty of vegetables, such as blanched spinach and lettuce, but they will also happily eat dried foods of a good quality.
