The natural range of Boesemani is limited to a few lakes in Irian Jaya. These lakes are generally alkaline water (pH 8.0-9.0). However, they don't seem to mind lower PHs. If you are very lucky you will witness a male behaving like a peacock while he displays his magnificent ability to change colours just like an octopus. Click the pictures for a close look.
