Social Behaviour: Peaceful fish that is good for a community tank. Female will try to eat the fry after they are born.

Up Keep: No preference, they are hardy and can be kept in most water conditions.
Breeding: Male will spawn with little effort. Good idea to get a breeding box if you wish to save the fry.
