Peaceful, somewhat shy fish that will not exhibit much daytime activity in an improperly designed environment. Rather, they will stay in the shadows afforded by wood , rocks and floating plants. The fish permanently looks after food in the substrate, therefore a soft sandy substrate is essential.  Plants cannot be used.

The fish is omnivorous but has a preference for worms.

Captive breeding has not been achieved.
