This peaceful fish should be kept in a very large aquarium.  He can be kept together with smaller fishes.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.  They need hiding places so you should use some driftwood to set up the aquarium as well.  A good filtration and clear water is necessary.

He has a small mouth so you should give them small live food.  Dry food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
