  1. About Fish Species:

    • Scientific name: Ctenopoma acutirostre
    • Common name: Leopard Bush Fish
    • Family: Anabantidae
    • Origin: Africa (Congo River Basin and West Africa)
    • Adult length: Up to 15 cm
    • Lifespan: 5 to 8 years
  2. Tank Setup:

    • Leopard Bush Fish prefer a well-planted tank with plenty of hiding spots and territories.
    • Provide driftwood, rocks, and caves to mimic their natural habitat and create hiding places.
  3. Water Parameters:

    • Leopard Bush Fish thrive in slightly acidic to neutral water conditions with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5.
    • Keep the water temperature between 24 to 28°C (75 to 82°F).
  4. Filtration and Water Flow:

    • A moderate water flow is suitable for these fish, so choose a filter that provides gentle to moderate flow.
  5. Diet:

    • Leopard Bush Fish are carnivorous and should be offered a variety of live and frozen foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and small crustaceans.
    • They can also accept high-quality pellets or flakes, but live foods are preferred.
  6. Tank mates:

    • Leopard Bush Fish are semi-aggressive and should be kept with similarly sized, peaceful tank mates.
    • Avoid keeping them with small or slow-moving fish that may become prey.
  7. Behavior and Compatibility:

    • Leopard Bush Fish are solitary and territorial, so provide plenty of hiding places to reduce aggression.
    • They may show aggression towards conspecifics or similar-looking fish, so monitor their behavior carefully.
