Relevant Information:

Found in rivers and lakes. Feeds on insect larvae and small invertebrates. Oviparous, eggs are unguarded. Found alongside P. brachypopterus where they school together. A bit more rarer in the hobby than P. brachypopterus. Aquarium Care: Quite a shy fish so would need a planted tank to make them feel safe in their surroundings. Have at least 6 to form a group. Remarks: Listed in Fishbase as still in the Schilbeidae family but in the Catalog of Fishes the current status is the family Horabagride.
