Gorgeous specimen, and welcome to the forum! I too am a big fan of paradise fish and am trying to establish a harem in my 29 gallon. Speaking of which...does this fine fellow have any lady friends?

Nice paradise fish. We only get the blue with red stripes morph here in the states. Wish I can find the red morph.

I assume you mean how to keep the fry? Paradise fish fry need infusoria (I.E microbes) for the first few days after they are free-swimming, which can be grown in a jar with some dead plant clippings and which occur naturally on aquarium plants from mature aquaria (mosses tend to have particularly large colonies of infusoria). After that, they need baby brine shrimp, vinegar eels, or microworms, and may be able to be weaned onto dead foods after a few weeks. At about 6 weeks, they start developing their labryinth organ to breathe air, so make sure that the fry tank is very well covered to allow the air in the tank to be high humidity and the same temperature as the tank water; die-offs usually happen about this stage, though in view of how large a paradise fish's brood can be and how large they grow that might not be a bad thing.

我英语不好,不知道你们能不能看懂
We can use google translate to understand you :)
我们可以用谷歌翻译来理解你。

We only get the blue Macropodus opercularis here in the United States. You have the red version in the picture.
我们只能得到蓝色的盖斑斗鱼在这里,在美国。你有红色版本的图片。

Yes, please show all of your Macropodus.

You can occasionally find other species of Macropodus in the U.S., usually M. spechti. I have some M. ocellatus, which is probably a lot easier to find in China than in Brooklyn. The female sometimes chases the male away & cares for the eggs & fry by herself. Some fry may avoid being eaten by the adults & grow up alongside them.

No, I mean how do you keep the adult fish, are the adult fish kept together? We keep the male paradise fish in a small tank respectively. And separated by opaque paper, I put the paper away let them confrontation every day. Sometimes i placed them in one tank and let them fight.Then I'll write a post about how to separate the tank and my other paradise fish.
不,我的意思是你们怎么饲养成年鱼,是把成年鱼都养在一起吗?我们饲养天堂鱼都是把雄性成年鱼分别养在小方鱼缸里。并且用不透明的纸片隔开,每天把纸片抽开让他们互相对峙。有时也会把他们放在一个鱼缸里让他们战斗。一会儿我再写一个帖子写怎么分开鱼缸还有我的其他鱼。
