This calm, slow fish should not be kept together with smaller fishes because they think it is food and they will eat them.  The aquarium should be set up with stones that make caves.  Large, hard plants can be used for decoration as well.  The substrate should be sandy.

You should give them large, live food.  In their natural habitat they exclusive eat other fishes. 

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
