This fish needs a lot of free swimming space in the aquarium.  The aquarium should be set up with stones and driftwood.  Plants cannot be used because they think it is food and they will eat them.  A strong filter is necessary.

You should give them live food.  A large part of the food should be vegetable.  Frozen and dry food are accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
