Blackstripe minnow

Galaxiella nigrostriata males grow to a maximum length of 4.

The Blackstripe minnow lives in the demersal, freshwater environment.

blackstripe minnow, the golden shiner and the fathead minnow have been also suggested for control of mosquito larva. There are still many more in this series. Although these mosquito fishes get established in most habitats, however the species are not, in general, cold tolerant. More
