Very peaceful species which will do well in a quite
community tank where the tank mates are non-aggressive.
Does not bury itself in the substrate as much as other
species of this family. Provide a sand substrate and
a planted dark area to make them feel more secure
in their surroundings. Better to feed at lights out
or in a dimly lit tank so they can get their share
of any foodstuffs. Diet: Live and
frozen foods such as mosquito larvae, tubifex and
small crustacea. Tablet foods and sunken flake that
lies on the bottom is also taken.
