A small member of this genus
which should be a good addition to an African tank
setup. Aquarium Care: As with most
of this genera it cannot to be trusted with smaller
tank mates. Would do better with larger African Tetras
or Cichlids. Give it a choice of hiding places to
make it feel more comfortable in its surroundings
as it can be nocturnal. Diet: Will
eat most aquarium fare. Captured specimens stomachs
contained mainly plant matter, and insect larvae.
River system below Stanley Falls. Type locality:
Stanley Pool and Kutu.
