Care: As with most of this genus, will do
well in a larger aquarium of 6ft (180cm) or over which
is well filtered. Water parameters can be quite diverse
for this genera. As this genus in the main are messy
eaters, good water quality and filtration would need
to be adhered to. Diet: Omnivore
with a liking for green, tablet and frozen foods.
