The black point labrinus is a tropical freshwater fish. This is one of the few representatives of the family who has gained fame in the field of aquariums. The black spotted liborin has black and yellow vertical stripes on the body. It is loved by many people because of its bright colours. In captivity, they can reach 10-12 inches in size. These are mobile and active fish groups that must be kept in groups of 6-7 individuals. They may be involved in fin bites. Black scale liborinus can easily live 5 years or more in captivity. These fish jump well, so the lid of the aquarium should be covered.

tank friends
In large aquariums, black laburens are generally peaceful. They can become aggressive when they are hungry and crowded. Do not add to small fish, otherwise it will become food. Do not add slow fish and large finned fish such as freshwater angels. Because Leporinus are fin incisors. Plecos, silver dollars, and rainbow trout would be good choices. If there is a dispute it is better to separate them.
