Lively, very peaceful schooling fish.  You should keep them in a great number because otherwise they hide themselves during the day.  The substrate should be sandy because they like to search after food in it.  Plants should be anchored very well.  A regular changing of the water is necessary.

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

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.

This fish is on the IUCN redlist in category 2.3 as critically Endangered.
