Relevant Information:

Aquarium Care: As with most of this genus it will do well in an aquarium where it will wipe out any algae. Relatively easy to breed where the female will deposit its eggs in a confined space such as pipe work. Diet: Feed vegetable foods such as lettuce, cucumber and courgette (zucchini).
