Peaceful bottomdweller that can be kept in a school together with other peaceful fishes.  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 so a regular changing of the water is necessary.  You should not keep them with temperatures that are too high.

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.  They also eat leftover from other fishes.

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.
