Forest Half Beak

The Forest Half Beak gets its name from the small clear forest streams it inhabits in Thailand. This half beak is wild caught and has more color than other half beaks. You should have some brine shrimp and other small live food available since these fish sometimes require transitioning to flake food. The forest half beak is a surface dweller in the aquarium and very rare in the trade.
