This calm and peaceful schooling fish is only at young age suited for our aquarium at home.  Because he can grow very large you just can keep them in a large show aquarium in a zoo.  The aquarium should be planted on the sides and background.  Some roots and driftwood can be used as well.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
