Peaceful schooling fish.  Only in breeding time they are somewhat aggressive.  You can keep him best in a small group of 5-6 fishes.  He can be kept together with almost all other peaceful fishes.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  The aquarium should receive much light by which there is some algae growth.  A strong filter and a regular changing of the water is recommended. 

You should give them small live food but a part of the food should be vegetable like algae. 

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
