The appropriate pH concentration quadruped fish it is 6 – 7.5. Every week, you must change the water for the fish once and the water to be replaced must be the old water (the water kept in the container for 2-3 days to decompose all the chlorine) or the water that it was treated with all chlorine.

In the frying tank of quadruped fish There must be many aquatic plants as an environment for them to hide and grow naturally in the lake. At the same time, avoid the risk of being eaten by other fish.
Some water parameters for fish culture:
- Water temperature (C): 20 – 30
- Water hardness (dH): 5 – 8.5
- Suitable pH: 6 – 7.5
- Tank volume (L): 100 (or 30 liters)

Reproductive form: The fish are mature and capable of spawning at the age of 5-6 months. After a successful mating, the female lays the eggs on a soft substrate placed on the bottom. After the female has finished sitting, it is necessary to separate the brood fish in a separate tank to avoid the fish eating the eggs, the eggs hatch after 2-3 days at a temperature of 28-30oC. The fry after hatching 2-3 days begin to eat the food available in the external environment. Usually, people keep this species in a large tank with a lot of aquatic plants for the newly dug fry to hide and avoid large fish, because they breed and grow naturally in the aquarium.
