The first specimen was collected in Peru by Norwegian aquarist Erland D. Bertelsen and the last two was collected in the Madre De Dios region in Peru by myself (Allan James) where they were abundant. Aquarium care: Peaceful towards conspecifics but territorial with its own kind. Provide a moderate sized aquarium with hiding places such as bogwood, rockwork and plants. A good water flow is recommended with good aeration and filtration. Diet: Live, frozen and flake foods.
