A beautifully marked, small growing fish found in warm blackwater pools within the Congo River basin, the Ornate Bushfish or Ornate Ctenopoma is a unique, social species which spends most of its life hunting tiny invertebrates among leaf litter and aquatic vegetation. In the aquarium, they require warm temperatures, soft, acidic water, and will benefit from the addition of tannins from driftwood or other botanicals. Best kept in a species tank or with other small, peaceful fish, Ornate Bushfish will do best in a group and should be provided plenty of small protein-rich frozen foods like small bloodworms, enriched brine, or mysis.
