Peaceful fish that you should keep in a school of at least 8-10.  In a larger aquarium a larger school is even more beautiful.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space. 

They are omnivorous but they prefer live food.  Dry food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
