Temperament

Peaceful by themselves. DO NOT attempt to keep more than one male in any one tank at a time. Males fight to the death

Comments

Meant to be kept alone in a bowl or a tank or only with fish the same size or larger than they are. Many different color varieties and sub-species are available.  Never keep two or more males together. Males are the colorful ones, the females are rather bland and their fins are much shorter.
