micro predator that will only eat live foods. be sure that the tank is stocked with plenty of microfauna such as scuds, microworms, and rotifers or have plenty of live food cultures on hand. coloration of males intensifies during spawning season. fine bushed plants such as Rotala wallichii or Cabomba are used as spawning sites.
