This is a close relative of Betta. The paradise fish is similar in temperament, but prefers cooler waters, making them an ideal beginner's fish for a small temperate aquarium. They will adapt to a wide range of conditions and are thoroughly undemanding. Lighting conditions should be kept dim or diffused with floating plants. They don't particularly appreciate company, especially of their own kind, so tank mates are not recommended for this particular species. Like all gourami, this is a labyrinth fish and can breathe atmospheric air, so a small gap between the surface of the water and the lid should be offered for easy access.

Please note that the fish you are buying are juveniles and will  need a little while to colour up. But when they do, it is certainly worth the wait!

If you require any advice on keeping these fish, please contact us and speak to member of the team.
