In aquaria, their habitats are not liable to dry out, but males remain aggressive toward one another. With forward-thinking on our side, we can preempt this behavioral trait by keeping only single pairs in smaller tanks, harems with a single male and multiple females in mid-sized tanks, or groups with a heavy females bias in large aquaria with lots of well-defined territories. Notho Killi’s natural habitats are characterized by dense vegetation, and they do best in planted aquascapes with other areas of cover from furnishings like wood, rocks, and caves. In captivity, their lifespans are extended to about a year, but breeding is easily stimulated. Pairs may be moved to shallow spawning tanks with a thick layer of mossy substrate. Once eggs are deposited, moss may be removed, drained, and stored in a plastic bag for about 4 months. Then, they may be resubmerged in water to hatch in their own tank, and once fry reach a suitable size, they may be moved into larger aquaria. While best maintained in species-only setups, they may be kept in community aquaria with tiny tankmates like Danios, Tetras, Rainbowfish, and Catfish. Feeding mostly on small invertebrates in the wild, they should be fed mostly items like Daphnia, Artemia, and chopped bloodworm, supplemented by small flake. Natural water conditions ranging quite a bit, Notho Killis are not particularly sensitive and may be kept in waters with temperatures between 68°F and 80°F, pH of 6.0 to 7.5, and hardness up to 179 ppm.
