Product Description:

Introducing the Garra Flavatta for Aquariums - A Stunning Addition to Your Underwater Haven! Enhance your tank's beauty with this vibrant, SEO-friendly species. 

Detailed Description:

The Garra Flavatta, commonly known as the Honey Garra, is a remarkable freshwater fish species that will captivate any aquarium enthusiast. With its striking coloration and active behavior, this fish adds a touch of elegance to your underwater haven. In this detailed description, we will explore the ideal water conditions, compatible tank mates, feeding habits, and care requirements for the Garra Flavatta.

Water Conditions:
- Temperature: Maintain a water temperature between 75°F and 82°F (24°C to 28°C) for optimal health and vitality.
- pH Level: The ideal pH range for the Honey Garra is between 6.8 and 7.5, replicating its natural habitat.
- Water Hardness: Aim for moderate to slightly hard water with a dGH (degrees of General Hardness) ranging from 8 to 15.
- Filtration: Use a reliable filtration system to maintain clean water, as the Garra Flavatta thrives in well-oxygenated environments.
- Lighting: Provide moderate to low lighting conditions, using aquatic plants or decorations to create shaded areas for the fish to retreat to.

Tank Mates:
- Peaceful Species: The Honey Garra is generally peaceful and can coexist with other non-aggressive community fish. Avoid housing them with fin-nipping or aggressive species.
- Similar-sized Fish: Opt for tank mates of similar size to prevent any predatory behavior towards smaller fish or territorial disputes with larger ones.
- Bottom-Dwelling Species: The Garra Flavatta is primarily a bottom-dweller, so choose tank mates that inhabit other areas of the tank, such as mid-level or surface-dwelling fish.

Feeding Habits:
- Herbivorous Diet: The Honey Garra is primarily herbivorous, so their diet should consist of high-quality plant-based foods. Provide them with a variety of sinking pellets, flakes, and algae wafers.
- Supplemental Foods: Occasionally supplement their diet with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, or bloodworms to provide essential proteins and nutrients.

Care:
- Tank Size: Provide a spacious aquarium with a minimum capacity of 30 gallons (113 liters) to accommodate their active nature.
- Substrate: Use a sandy or fine-grained substrate to mimic their natural habitat and prevent potential injuries to their delicate barbels.
- Hiding Places: Create ample hiding spots using driftwood, caves, or densely planted areas to allow the Garra Flavatta to feel secure.
- Water Quality: Perform regular water changes to maintain excellent water quality, ensuring the removal of accumulated waste and toxins.
- Monitoring Behavior: Observe their behavior regularly, as any signs of aggression, stress, or illness should be addressed promptly.

With its mesmerizing appearance and peaceful demeanor, the Garra Flavatta is an excellent choice for aquarists looking to create a visually appealing and harmonious aquarium. By providing suitable water conditions, compatible tank mates, and a nutritious diet, you can ensure the health and happiness of these delightful freshwater fish in your aquatic paradise.
