Part of the so called "Elegans Group". Can sometimes be difficult to identify, has two white stripes along the body with a blackish stripe splitting them. All fins have a yellow tinge. Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will be happier in a group.
