A rarely seen species from Sukama, Borneo that is best kept alone in a tank with soft, acidic water filtered through peat.
Males have darker bands along the body than the females, but otherwise the two sexes are quite similar. In the dealer's tanks these fish are unlikely to show their full colouration. Males also have rather longer, more pointed fins.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Peaceful, delicate fish that needs a quiet tank is probably best kept alone.
Not much known about breeding but presumed to be similar to the other Parosphronemus.
|Water Parameters||Soft and acidic conditions are required|
