Origin : Guyana

Peaceful lively schooling fish for the community aquarium.  They are not often seen in the aquarium because it is very difficult to catch them.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot free swimming space.  A dark substrate and a dimmed light bring out the unexpected colours of the fish.  You need a powerful filter and water with plenty of oxygen.

You should give them small live food.  Dry food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
