Peaceful bottomdweller that you should keep in a school of at least 10 fish.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  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 nitrates. A regular changing of the water is necessary.

You should give them small live food such as waterflees and mosquito larvae.  They eat the leftover from other fish.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
