Peaceful schooling fish for a large aquarium without plants because they eat them.  You only can use some javafern, that is the only plant they don't eat.  The aquarium should be set up with stones and driftwood.

They eat vegetable food such as lettuce or spinach leaves.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
