You should keep this peaceful fish in a school of at least 7-10 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. 

You should give them small live food.  Dry food is accepted as well.

Breeding is not easy.  The spawning couple should be fed well with a great variety of food.  The eggs are spawned against the wall after violent chasing.  After spawning the parents should be removed and the aquarium should be darkened a little.  The eggs are sensitive for fungus.
