Description: The base color of Microctenopoma fasciolatum is brownish-yellow with 8-12 dark vertical stripes on each side and there is a blue patch on the gill cover. The dorsal and anal fins on male are greatly extended similar to those of the Paradise Fish. Female has less color.

Banded ctenopoma is a bubblenest builder. Breeding is possible in soft (2-4 °dGH), slightly acidic (pH 6.5) water with a temperature around 28 °C. The male builds a bubblenest among the floating plants or under a broad leaf. Spawning occurs under the nest: the male embraces the female’s body with his own body while the eggs and sperm are released. The 500-700 eggs hatch in around 24-36 hours, and the fry become free-swimming in another 2-3 days. The parents should be removed after hatching. The fry are tiny and should be fed with infusoria or brine shrimp nauplii.
