I am very concerned about the state of fish species all over the world. But in your country you have some species that have caught my interest, namely Ctenops Nobilis. Is this fish in an endangered condition? I want to try to breed them but it has become incresingly hard to find them here in the USA. What are your thoughts on my intent to breed and can you direct me to where I might be able to aquire them??

Hello Skipp, Welcome.
I dont think there has been any official survey to find out the population in the wild. But, looking at the frequency of their availability in the exporter's list all round the year, I am sure they are nowhere in danger, as of date.

I'm a fishkeeping fool!!! I have had all kinds of exotic fish. I'm mostly a keeper of predators: Snakehead Fish, Datnioides, Ctenopomas, Erpetoichthys Calabaricus, Arowanas, ect. I currently have only one tank set up right now, and it is my wifes, a community tank . But my turn is coming. I truely want to try to successfully keep the Indian Gourami (Ctenops Nobilis). They are a unique fish in shape and temperment. I hate the fact that the US has banned the Snakehead Fish. You cant import or even get caught dead with one or it's a stiff fine, I'm not going to do anything illegal anyway, but this was my favorite species. I'm thinking about aquiring a 120 gal. cube for the Gouramis, with a wet/dry filter & a canister filter as my chemical purifier. Also have any of you ever used these new LED lights in the aquarium??? I have heard that they are very bright and the light penitrates deep into the tank creating a shimmering ocean effect. Let me know.
