swift current. Aquarium Care: The
male 'black lancers' can be very territorial and as
such can be only be kept, one male to a tank with
the rest females. Although they posses a small mouth
it is wide, but they don't tend to be a threat to

fish with them they could be picked of at night as
the lancer enjoys its night-time forays. Diet:
Feeds on insects and small fishes.
