Brief Summary

Read full entry
Amur bitterlings are small carp ranging in size from 5 to 8 centimeters. Due to their bitter taste, predators tend to avoid them. Amur bitterlings are only found in places where freshwater mussels (painter's mussels or swan mussels) are found. These mussels serve as a surrogate mother for the fish.
