Overview: A beautiful, peaceful fish which does well with conspecifics and in a community aquarium. Once they settle in, these fish will develop a beautiful deep burgundy body color with a blue-green spot on the side. When they spawn, the male builds a bubble nest under a leaf or in a cave. They embrace in the manner of the well known Betta splendens and the male cares for the eggs and young until they are free swimming.
Setup Considerations: This species comes from still waters, and doesn’t appreciate a strong current. They make a great addition to a nano aquarium and can be kept with other small, peaceful, sedate fish.
Specific Care Requirements: They are not fast eaters, and can be outcompeted by quicker, more aggressive feeders. Also, they jump, so please keep a lid on the tank.
Diet: Flakes, pellets, frozen and live foods are all eagerly eaten.
