The Life of Animals | Reedfish | Reedfish are curious, peaceful, and some have "personality". Once you have an other peaceful fish that can "intimidate" a Reedfish, despite its large size, especially if there is competition in the fish tank for food or space. An easy way to verify if the Reedfish have the need is to put a tank farm with a lid on the tank, which will soon make their nests on top if necessary. The fish are known escape artists and can jump a distance so great, the tank must have a well-fitting lid, without large holes; inexperienced aquarists have saved their drying Reedfish after finding her on the floor just Reedfish vivo. It is preferable to reduce the water level, if you can not completely seal the tank.
Reedfish in captivity more readily accept bloodworms and other frozen foods that go to the bottom of the tank. If kept with other fish to eat fast, you better put Reedfish food in a narrow tube that only he could get, or feed him bloodworms hand. Although there have been people who were adults in small tanks of 100 liters, which do best in large tanks. Water must not be very pure and clean as a Reedfish natural habitat is often low and well-nourished with oxygen, however, other fish in the tank may not be compatible with water slightly impure.
