Best kept in a densely-planted tank and an excellent choice for the carefully-aquascaped set-up.

The addition of some floating plants and driftwood roots or branches to diffuse the light entering the tank also seems to be appreciated and adds a more natural feel.

If you wish to raise fry alongside the adults the addition of fine-leaved aquatic moss such as a Taxiphylum sp. is advisable.

The water should be well-oxygenated and a degree of flow is advisable.

Do not add this fish to a biologically immature aquarium as it can be susceptible to swings in water chemistry.

Temperature: The air and water temperatures in its natural habitats do not vary a great deal and in aquaria the fish tend to fare poorly unless maintained within the range 24 – 28 °C.

pH7.0 – 8.0

Hardness268 – 536 ppm

Feeds chiefly on floating or suspended zooplankton, phytoplankton, and invertebrates in nature, and in the aquarium must be offered items of a suitable size.
