|IUCN Red List Category||Not Evaluated|
|pH||6.5 - 7.5|
|Temperature||24.5-26.0°C or 76.1-78.8°F (Show species within this range)|
|Other Parameters||Prefer a brisk if not strong current, in nature they are found in only a few centimetres of water to about 60cm depth.|
|Feeding||Will feed on prepared and frozen foods.|
|Furniture||Substrate should be fine sand, as they do hide in the substrate.|
|Compatibility||May eat fry from other fishes, but their overall size is small, so most fish will be fine - even neon tetras and such would be large enough to not become a meal.|
|Suggested Tankmates||Compatible with most fish that are not much larger or so small they become part of the menu.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
|Reference||Proceedings of the Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen (Series C, Biological and Medical Sciences) v. 92 (no. 3), pp 387, Fig. 2.|
