Hello
I'm considering a P.obscura for my 48" x 18" x 18"/120cm x 45cm x 45cm tank (I haven't exactly got it yet ,just looking for some stocking ideas before I get it made).Anyways I have a few questions -
1.How long will my tank last for a single obscura?
2.Maximum size in captivity and growth rate?
3.Are they sensitive to water parameters unlike channa?
4.Is strong filtration required? or do they prefer stagnant water?
Tia.
