Other labyrinth fish in nature

Macropods or blue paradise fishes, gouramis and co. belong as labyrinth fishes to the climbing fishes (Anabantiformes). They come from the subtropics and tropical regions in Asia. There they live in plant-rich waters with little current in hard to soft and quite warm water. Their attractive colors and relatively uncomplicated keeping contribute to their incredible popularity in the aquarium hobby. In addition to gills, labyrinth fish such as Fork-tailed Macropods or Blue Paradise Fish or Growling Dwarf Guramis have a labyrinth organ with which they breathe air. Therefore, they always need free access to the water surface. They can actually catch cold in cold air, and they like to jump. Therefore, the aquarium should always have a tight aquarium cover. In our store, in addition to high-bred fighting fish and gourami, you can also buy other labyrinth fish, such as the brightly colored blue paradise fish, which are among the very first fish in aquaristics, or the talkative growling dwarf gourami, which gets its name from the sounds it emits.

Other labyrinth fish

The growling dwarf gourami grows to only 3-4 inches in size, making it one of the nanofishes that we discuss in more detail in our online blog, "The Nanofish Encyclopedia." Macropods or blue paradise fish are larger and should therefore be kept in larger aquariums. You can find them for sale in our online store at Garnelio. Other labyrinth fish are also oriented to the water surface and need a well-covered as well as well-structured and planted aquarium. Their liveliness makes the growling dwarf gouramis only limited suitable for a community tank, they should only be kept with from the size suitable relatively assertive aquarium fish. Macropods or blue paradise fish, on the other hand, are more compatible, but under no circumstances should they be kept with ornamental fish that would tug at their fins.

Feeding of other labyrinth fish - the right fish food

Common in aquaristics, other labyrinth fish are omnivores that need a mixed plant and animal diet, with a slight emphasis on the animal diet. They like to eat live food and therefore should not be socialized with small invertebrates such as dwarf shrimp, frozen food is also readily taken.
With the delicious, carefully composed NatureHolic main feed for omnivores your labyrinths are well supplied, and with the NatureHolic Protein Worms and the vegetable Algae Worms you provide additional feeding fun.

Offspring of other labyrinth fishes

mazefish can reproduce in the aquarium. They build a foam nest into which the male spits the eggs and also supervises them there. It thus carries out brood care. After spawning, the females are also driven away, as are all other aquarium fish. Therefore, breeding in a separate aquarium is much less stressful for the male. Once the fry have hatched, the male may also return to his ancestral tank. The baby fish are raised on fine live food such as artemia euplii. About breeding Artemia you can find a detailed blog by Garnelio here: "Artemia züchten, halten, vermehren & verfüttern - Alles wissenswertes über Artemia".

Conclusion

Even if they do not belong to the gourami or fighting fish, the other labyrinth fish are popular and proven in aquaristics. Also in the community aquarium with suitable furnishing and additional stock they make a beautiful picture. Fork-tailed macropods and other labyrinth fish are great to watch. Macropods are even said to eat the annoying and dangerous planarians! In our Garnelio Online Shop you can buy ornamental fish that enjoy a long tradition in the aquarium hobby and that have proven themselves in aquaristics.
