  1. Tank Size: Provide a tank of at least 20-30 gallons for a group of Peacock Gudgeons, as they are social fish and do best when kept in small schools.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water conditions with a temperature of 75-79°F (24-26°C), a pH level around 6.5-7.5, and soft to moderately hard water. A good filtration system is essential.

  3. Substrate: Use fine sand or soft gravel as substrate to prevent injury to their delicate barbels while they forage.

  4. Tank Mates: Peacock Gudgeons are generally peaceful but can be finicky eaters. They do well with other small, non-aggressive fish. Avoid housing them with aggressive species.

  5. Decor: Provide hiding spots with rocks, caves, and driftwood. Live plants, such as Java moss and Anubias, can create a natural environment and offer shelter.

  6. Diet: These gudgeons are carnivores. Their diet should include high-quality sinking pellets, live or frozen foods like bloodworms, brine shrimp, and small crustaceans.
