You can keep this bottom dweller in a community aquarium.  The aquarium should be planted densely.  A part of the bottom of the aquarium should be free and should be sandy because they like to search after food in it and their tender barbels are easily damaged.  They are very sensitive for nitrate.

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

Breeding is difficult.  Not much is known about it.  The water should be free of nitrate.
