They can be a little aggressive with other Brachyrhamdia’s
and it is important to have a few hiding places such
as plants, caves, and pipes to keep aggression down.
Diet: They are very greedy eaters,
accepting dried and live food but seem to prefer bloodworm.
Redescribed, as Rhamdia marthae, in Zarske
(2003) but valid as B. marthae.
