Peaceful schooling fish for the upper water layers.  They should be kept in a large school of at least 12 fishes.  The aquarium should be planted well on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space. 

You can feed them live small insects such as mosquitoes or mayflies.  Their larvae are accepted as well.

Breeding is easy.  The breeding aquarium should be on a sunny spot in the morning.  You should put the parents in the breeding aquarium in the evening.  The next morning they lay and fertilize the eggs between floating plants.  After spawning the parents should be removed.  After 24 hours the eggs hatch.  When the young fishes are swimming free you can raise them with very fine infusoria.
