When it comes to pH, these fish prefer slightly acidic to neutral waters, with an ideal pH range between 6.5 and 7.5. They adapt well to community aquariums, but special attention must be paid to water quality to maintain a balance conducive to their well-being.

Water temperature is a crucial factor for Epalzeorhynchos frenatum, which thrives in tropical conditions. A water temperature between 24 and 28 degrees Celsius is recommended.

Water hardness, measured in terms of mineral concentration, should ideally be between 5 and 15 dGH (German degrees of total hardness). These red-tailed rainbow sharks enjoy well-planted aquatic environments, providing hiding places and open swimming areas.

In terms of behavior, the Epalzeorhynchos frenatum is known for its territorial temperament. It can be aggressive towards its conspecifics, and it is recommended to keep these fish in larger groups to reduce territorial conflicts.
