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

A shoal of tetras? A well-planted Amazon tank with a large shoal of neon tetras looks amazing. The bright neon blue and red against a green leafy background has got to be one of the best combinations in fishkeeping. It is no wonder that these are one of the most popular aquarium species. But as with all shoaling species, tetras need to be kept in a group to be happy. The larger the better (without overstocking your tank). Six individuals is usually seen as the absolute minimum in a shoal, but more is better. The effect of a large tank with a shoal of 30-40 neon or cardinal tetras is simply stunning
