German term or phrase:fadentragend
"Unverträgliche Fische (adulte Buntbarsche), unterschiedlich große Fische, Fische, die sich gegenseitig verletzen können (z.B. Sumatrabarben mit schleier-, langflossigen oder fadentragenden Fischen) [...] dürfen nicht in einem Becken vergesellschaftet werden."
This is from a set of specifications about how to house animals in specialist pet stores. I have no idea what is meant by "fadentragende Fische" here and can find precious little on the internet.
