This peaceful schooling species can be quite shy, making it largely unsuitable for communities of big boisterous fish. It will enjoy a planted aquarium, where the school can seek refuge in the foliage. The fish will develop a pecking order between themselves – it’s usually a good idea to maintain them in a ratio of 1 male to every 2-3 females. This species will accept commercially prepared foods,
