Relevant Information:

This species is very rare in the hobby. Aquarium Care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium sized tank mates 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. Diet: Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and good quality flake to name but a few.
