AQUARIUM CARE: This small Betta was collected by Allen and Barbera Brown, and is now fairly widely kept amongst anabantid fans. It is a shy species requiring its own tank, with soft water. They have been seen in a dealers tank (London tapwater medium hard, pH 7.8) doing fine. It is not overly aggressive.

BREEDING: Breeding requires very soft (pH4-5) water, which is most easily achieved with hydrochloric acid. A shallow tank is best with some form of breeding cave. A film canister stuck to the side works fine. The nest is built within it. Once spawning is completed the entire nest can be scooped out and raised seperately if desired.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Vegetarian fish Some catfish have a largely vegetarian diet; feed them potato, lettuce, cucumber or blanched peas. Some of these will have to be weighted down, or held in place with a commercially available 'lettuce grip'. As with all fish, do not over feed; remove uneaten vegetable matter after a couple days
