Water parameters for Barbucca Diabolica

The Barbucca Diabolica should be kept in an aquarium with the temperature ranging from 75 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, and a Ph of around 6.5.


Not much is known about this fish. The name Barbucca was said to be coined by Tyson Roberts in 1989 with only Barbucca diabolica as the member of its own genus.

It originates from forested streams so leaf litter, bogwoods and dense thickets of plants are very important as you aim to replicate its environment.
