Description

A colorful fish is an anabantoid (Labyrinth fish) meaning that it breathes atmospheric oxygen as well as dissolved oxygen.  It requires a larger aquarium with lots of hiding places for the female. Although they do not eat plants, they can have a tendency to damage them during courtship and battles with their tank mates.

Current Size – 3.5cm – 4cm

Adult Length – 10cm

Temperature Range – 10 – 22°C

Special Requirements – The paradise fish is happy at much lower temperatures than most fish in this family. They are often kept in unheated aquariums and still thrive.

Tanks Mates and Compatibility – similarly-shaped fishes should be avoided, but can be maintained alongside peaceful schooling species with comparable environmental requirements.
