Parosphromenus is a fairly ineffectively known gathering, both to aquarists and analysts; in any case, inside the gourami family, it is second just to Betta regarding its species-level decent variety. There are directly 20 perceived species in this family, yet the genuine biodiversity might be twice this number. Their conveyance in the islands of Southeast Asia, alongside their poor dispersal capacities and explicit territory necessities, have made a very divided scene that has prompted broad speciation.
With respect to aquarium care, licorice gouramis come principally from acidic peat marshes, and advantage from being kept in comparable water conditions. This implies warm, steady temperatures, acidic to close impartial pH, and delicate hardness. This is particularly valid for those wishing to breed these fishes. In any case, industrially cultivated examples are normally more tolerant of varying parameters, insofar as they aren’t uncontrollably unique. A soluble African cichlid tank would be a particularly poor fit for these easygoing animals, yet a tranquil network tank with perfect, impartial pH water ought to progress admirably. Delicate filtration, diminish light, and thick plants or other characteristic stylistic theme (driftwood, leaves) are parts in a decent set-up. Obviously, the peat overwhelms that these fishes normally originate from aren’t lavish with vegetation, so an appropriate biotope will concentrate on giving broad leaf litter.
Beside water quality, sustenance is another obstacle to defeat in keeping Parosphromenus. Live sustenances are unequivocally favored in this gathering, including things like infant saline solution shrimp (Artemia) or water insects (Daphnia, Moina) or mosquito and midge hatchlings. Solidified sustenances may likewise be acknowledged, and, for a few, even dry nourishments. Finding a decent blend of eating regimen is basic to fruitful farming, and no single nourishment ought to be depended upon too vigorously.
