This way, the fish will not get infected by the bacteria growing in the dirty water. Second, it will need aeration to provide the fish adequate oxygen and helps beneficial bacteria to grow.
The next equipment is UV sterilizer, a system of filtration that looks like UV lamps, to combat parasites, viruses, and harmful microorganisms in the aquarium. The last thing may seem, and it really depends on your preference, i.e., natural ornaments. Since louhan does not like to live with other species, the accessory will serve to brighten the aquarium. You can put colorful rocks on the bottom of the aquarium. Sometimes, louhan likes to play around by moving the rocks from one place to another.

       4.     Keep the aquarium clean
