Small and peaceful schooling fish that can be kept together with other small and peaceful fishes.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.  There should be a lot of hiding places made of roots and driftwood.  Use some floating plants and a dimmed light to bring out the colours of the fish.  You should use a peat filter to imitate black-water circumstances.  The fish is very sensitive for transportation.

You should feed them small live food.  Frozen and dry food are accepted as well.

This species has not been bred in the aquarium yet.
