This peaceful schooling fish is easy to keep.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space.  A dark substrate is appreciated.

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

Breeding is very easy.  At a temperature of 20-22C (68-72F) the eggs are laid and fertilized between fine leaved plants.  After spawning the parents should be removed.  After 36 hours the eggs hatch.  When the young fishes are swimming free you can raise them with the finest dustfood.  They grow very quickly.
