|IUCN Red List Category||Not Evaluated|
|Feeding||This genus feeds on wood, and should have several pieces, preferably several kinds of wood to chew on. Aside from wood, a mainly vegetarian diet is recommended, prepared food such as algae wafers and fresh vegetables, such as courgette (zucchini) and tubers such as potato or sweet potato (yams).|
|Furniture||Rock piles are optional and wood tangles are a must. Plants are not vital and will be nibbled or destroyed.|
|Suggested Tankmates||Works well with most types of peaceful community fish. Can be somewhat territorial towards conspecifics, but given enough hiding spaces, a group can be kept in a suitable size aquarium - roughly requiring a 30 x 30cm area per fish.|
