Peaceful schooling fish for the community aquarium.  The aquarium should be well planted on the sides and the background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming place.  The aquarium should be arranged in dark colors and have floating plants to diffuse the light to bring out better the colours of this fish.

They are omnivorous, so you should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

I have not found anything about breeding in the aquarium.
