Fish Name: Three spine Stickleback

Latin Name: Gasterosteus aculeatus

Maximum Size: 10cm

Preferred Water Conditions: Will acclimatize to a wide range of conditions. pH: 6.5-8.0

Temperature: Cold water-temperate between 2-24 deg C (34-80 deg F)

Care: Stickleback are vary easy to care for, in most ponds they will not require feeding as they will find enough natural food in the pond.

They have a high tolerance to poor water conditions and for a cold water fish a fairly high tolerance to temperature extremes.

They often breed in vast numbers and the success of there offspring is higher then other fish because the male stickleback protects the eggs and fry.

The male makes a nest and will actively chase away other fish and other males from his “patch”. In a tank this is very interesting to watch.

Stickleback mainly feed on small insect and invertebrate life, but will take pond foods too.

    Got 12 of these 2 weeks ago…… I’m in Lancashire and they all arrived on time and in good health.I added them to my 4000 litre wildlfe pond with an already established gang of about 20 sticks and as far as I can see they’re all doing fine. Great to watch at night with a torch and 12v light system. I would defo buy from these guys again.

    If there is a fish you could watch for hours at a time it’s these , absolutely great quality and delivery. I wouldn’t use any other company because the health and quality of their fish is always top notch 😀 .
