Peaceful schooling fish that you can keep in a small community aquarium together with other small and peaceful fishes.  The aquarium should be planted well on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.  A dark substrate and a dimmed light by using floating plants bring out the colours of the fish.

You should feed them a variety of small live food.  Frozen and dry food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known yet.
