Dace – Leuciscus leuciscus

Description: The Dace (Leuciscus leuciscus) is a species of freshwater and brackish water ray-finned fish from the family Cyprinidae which is native to Europe. Often confused with a Chub when juvenile, it has a concave anal fin and much smaller mouth. It also closely resembles the Ide. Its natural distribution is largely rivers and streams with some populations inhabiting canals and lakes.

Maximum Size: 14″, more likely 8-10″

Environment: Dace require the same environment as a Koi. A large, well filtered and aerated pond. They are a relatively quick growing fish and as such the largest ponds are suitable.

Water Conditions: Dace require a pH range of 7-8.5, Ammonia and Nitrite to be virtually 0ppm and dissolved oxygen saturation to remain above 8ppm.

As with any pet, please fully research for yourself to ensure that you can accommodate a fish of this type in your home.
