Lively, peaceful schooling fish that needs a lot of free swimming space in a larger community aquarium.  The aquarium should be planted, but not too densely.  Because they are very good jumpers you should cover the aquarium very well.   A powerful filter is necessary.

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.  A part of the food should be vegetable.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
