Description: Cardinal Brachy has a pale brown body coloration, with 12 dark bars on the sides, usually more prominent in males, and the fish also has a light blue irridencence on it's caudal fin. The belly is white. Unfortunately it is not a very commercially important fish.

Males have orange-red dorsal fin with black margin. The tailfin and even the back shows a red color. The gonopodium of the males is dichromatic, black on top and yellow underneath. The dorsal fin and caudal fin of the females are bordered with an iridescent whitish blue.

Brachyrhaphis roseni is also one of the easiest Brachyrhaphises to breed, gestation taking about a month and usually 10-25 fry being produced. The female should be separated in a smaller tank, so the adult fish will not eat the fry, or plant the tank densely to provide secure hiding places for fry.
