|Temperature||23.0-27.0°C or 73.4-80.6°F (Show species within this range)|
|Feeding||Omnivorous with a tendency towards meaty foods. Not an effective algae eater. Well fed individuals will not damage most plants.|
|Furniture||Rock piles and wood tangles. Plants are not vital.|
|Compatibility||Peaceful if a little territorial. As a rough guide give each fish a 12 inch square area well broken up with decorations.|
|Suggested Tankmates||A medium sized pleco that can be combined with a very wide array of tankmates due to its unfussy nature. Perfectly safe with small fishes and shrimp or robust enough to withstand the attention of all but the largest cichlids.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
|Reference||Aqualog depicts an out-of-water fish photograph which is hard to ID - the distinctive fin patterning (black stripes) does not appear evident.|
