Socialization in the aquarium:

The Busch-u. Gouramis get along easily with each other, So far everything is peaceful in the pool.
Even when feed there is no stress in the basin which it is well that the Bush fish the first are always eating and preferably the largest Paddings out looking.
Intraspecific fights, there are also only at the gourami, which is certainly not better in the future should still find a couple. Should this be so far I'll probably keep only a few in the basin.

The Ctenopoma acutirostre I hope that the group will remain so calm in the future are currently the most 4 together under the root and even swim together around.
All 4 have been significant gains in size before the gouramis have been added were the Ctenopoma acutirostre about half the size :) but really big, they still are not.
One of the four is a little smaller, these I now always Fütter min. 3 times separately a week, should I say look he sometimes caught the large pieces.

What I often read on the internet that the fish are quite shy and feed specialists are I can not confirm.
The Busch fish eat everything offered feed without hesitation, however, live food is preferred and everything floats around on the surface.
Scheu had the fish the first 2-3 weeks then I have the basin planted even more ever since the there are also active Schwimmer.Schwimmpflanzen need Ctenopoma but acutirostre necessarily. Since these are very often used as a shelter.

Update 15:12

The largest bushfish is now the same size with the largest Gourami, is likely now as the 8-9cm have the smallest has about 6cm.
So far, the fish are so grown quite remarkable when you consider it when I got the fish were all less than 4cm

Further information:
This is my 2nd Aquarium, my very first aquarium I had three years significantly larger and much less planted as a species tank.
Intricately designed with DIY 3D backplane ...... This is me unfortunately the clean gegangen.Ein broken with steel screw tipped hose broke both tension struts in the upper part of the basin apart what the consequence was that the basin plan.

2 Years Later I am now addressed it again and I have gained this little pool.
With technology and stocking I am very satisfied, just could be the pool is a good deal larger sein.Aber so long my Busch fish are so small should the basin still reichen.Früher or later the heck then be again more so to the 400-600liter while lasting stocking.
