Omnivorous, These fish are so like their wild relatives that they'll require a wild-foods diet to condition them when they are first brought home. Foods that are eaten voraciously include live and frozen artemia, bloodworms, daphnia, and plankton. Gradually introduce micro pellets and balanced prepared foods for small-mouthed fish.
Temperature of 70°F to 77°F (21 – 25 °C), pH 7.0 to 8.0 dH range: 9 - 19.
Easy to Moderate, good filtration and frequent water
Good in species-only tanks or as part of community tanks with similarly-sized fish. Keep in shoals of at least 6 to 8. Males maintain a hierarchical pecking order so they are best kept in a ratio or 4 females to 1 male. Tankmates might include emerald dwarf rasboras, highfin glassy perchlets, and Inle loach.
