Cardinal Grouse (Paracheirodon axelrodi) are freshwater fish valued for their vivid beauty and lively group behaviors. Native to South America, these fish have specific needs in terms of temperature, pH, water hardness, behavior and environment.

Cardinal Grouse thrive in tropical water temperatures between 23°C and 28°C. They prefer a slightly acidic to neutral pH, ideally between 5.5 and 7.5. The total hardness of the water should be maintained between 2 and 10 dGH.

These small fish are known for their peaceful behavior, but they are also gregarious. They feel most comfortable and display natural behaviors when kept in groups of six or more individuals.

A well-planted environment with shaded areas and hiding places for natural habitat, the rivers and tributaries of the Amazon rainforest. Be sure to maintain effective filtration to maintain good water quality, and perform regular water changes to prevent waste buildup.

In summary, to care for Cardinal Grouse in your aquarium, be sure to maintain the appropriate temperature, pH, water hardness, and keep them in groups in a well-planted environment.
