Hi....need info about Osphronemus Laticvius...
I have Giant Red Tail Gourami (Osphronemus Laticvius)...i want to know the best way to keep in such as size of tank, food etc...[/b]
Hi ermizam, and welcome to the forum.
I have moved this to a more appropriate section for you. :)
couple of wee links for you that i found:
maybe youve seen these links already, hope they help anyway x
you need around 300 gallons minimum for one of them, my local aquarium has a fully grown one, its very big trust me.
Thank you for the reply...my Osphronemus Laticvius is very active eater...almost eat anything including cockroaches...is it okay? :?: i also have one problem to take care this fish..becauze of going outstation for a period of 2 or 3 weeks...how to feed the fish when i'm not in home...are there any solutions other than asking my friends to feed him...? :oops: tqvm...
you can buy those automatic feeders (there machines, not those little chalky blocks that are meant to last for a few days) they cost around 25 dollars each, you can fit around 2-4 weeks food in there but for a fish that big you might need quite a few of those machines....
I see....thanks...i'll get one soon...seems that u have a Osphronemus Laticvius as your pet...i want to ask u...the characteristics of top quality Osphronemus Laticvius?
ermizam I was just wondering what size tank you have?
3 ft length & 1.5 ft width.....i guest...is it ok? :)
not really, needs at least 6 feet (72 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches)
the tank will be ok while the fish is still small but when it is fully grown it will need a tank that big.
