It’s also important that you provide a lot of refuge for your Razorback Musk under the water because they tend to be a little shy. Places to hide out will make them feel more at home!
Water temperatures should be maintained around 23-26C (74-79F) with a submersible aquarium heater such as the Exo Terra Turtle Heater. The use of a filter is required to keep the water clean as they are quite messy feeders, use one with a low water flow or one that can be adjusted.
