Peaceful fish that you should keep in brackish or seawater.  You should keep them together with fish that are not too small because they are eaten, they think it is food.  The aquarium should be planted with plants from brackish water.  The substrate should be coral sand.  You can keep them together with other fishes from brackish water.

They are omnivorous but they prefer large live food. 

About breeding in the aquarium little is known.  It is very difficult.  The large numbers of young fishes are difficult to feed.  Plankton is recommended.
