Ctenops nobilis (Frail Gourami)
A challenging species that does not do well in the average community tank. Unlike most other gouramis, this fish needs well-oxygenated water with a decent current. It does not like tropical temperatures for extended periods and is best kept in a well-planted subtropical aquarium.
It seems to be prone to bacterial infections, and if kept in water of the wrong pH and hardness, or at too high a temperature, it is very short lived. A fish for experienced aquarists prepared to give it the extra attention it demands.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Not particularly shy, and quite readily takes live and frozen foods such as bloodworms. Could potentially be kept with other fish from running water habitats but this would expose them to possible infections and parasites. All things considered, this fish is best kept alone.
Rarely bred in captivity, but is known to be a mouthbrooder.
