This calm and peaceful fish should be kept in a school in a large aquarium that is set up with stones and roots.  A powerful filter and a regular changing of the water are necessary.  A sandy substrate is appreciated. 

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

About breeding in the aquarium  nothing is known.
