This peaceful schooling fish only is suited for a very large aquarium without soft plants.  Soft plants are eaten.  The aquarium should be set up with driftwood, roots and stones.  Some hard plants such as Javafern can be used as well. 

You should give them vegetable food such as spinach and lettuce. Vegetable dry food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
