Like most glass catfishes they will do better in a
group. Keep alongside non aggressive species as they
will sulk and not eat if they are harassed. Clear
well filtered oxygen rich water in a large tank is
a must for this species for its successful keeping.
As they are schooling fish they would have to be housed
in a tank that was over 5'0" (150cm) long. Diet:
Live and frozen foods are taken and will graduate
to flake once they are settled in to aquarium life.
Adults will take smaller fish in the aquarium.
