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

Many aquarium species are territorial; these should only be kept with other fish in a larger tank with space for each. In a well-stocked dealers tank there is no chance to set up a territory, but problems will arise once introduced into your home community aquarium
