Type of paradise fish.

IUCN Red List: LC

Native to central vietnam particularly the Thu Bồn River system in Quảng Nam province, and the Hương (aka Perfume) River basin in Thừa Thiên-Huế province,.

Like the name suggest, the Black paradise fish is a dark colored gourami like fish with beautiful black outline on the fishes scales.   Males have extended anal dorsal and caudal fins while females have a much rounder body.  Unlike bettas, these fish tolerate their peers and usually establish a pecking order in groups.  A pair can be kept together in a 10 to 20-gallon tank.  They are also very hardy and tolerant of different water temperatures making them great beginner fish.
