This species is discovered only a few years ago (2003) and not much is known about them.  You should plant the aquarium densely because they are very aggressive to each other and fishes of a lower rank need hiding places.  You should use a powerful filter for a good aeration and clear water.

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

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known yet.
