I keep a small tank of these pretty little things. They are shy and the more plants they have in with them the more they will come out and about.

Currently I keep them in a species only tank ... and they regularly spawn.
 I will keep some shrimp in with them.
They eat regular flake food but love treats like cyclops ,daphnia, and BBS.

I keep them the same way I would keep a Betta .... a warm 78-80 F with a low current.
Personally I find they are more active and happier in a warmer tank.

like most of the Anabantids they like a planted tank with some floating plants to nest in.
 This is a species that loves twigs and long trailing roots to swim through.
This is one tank that I like to put my houseplant cuttings in . They love to dart about among the trailing roots of Pothos for me.

It took 7 days for God to create this world...
So how long will it take for me to create the perfect tank???
