This fish is very intolerant to species of their own kind, do you should keep him solitaire.  When you keep them together with Discus or Angelfish they make a lot of problems.  You should plant the aquarium very densely because they need hiding places.

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

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.
