Diet & Nutrition:Will take many types of foods, including flakes, pellets, freeze dried and especially live foods.
Breeding & Spawning: Do not build elaborate bubble nests, although the male may blow bubbles randomly at the surface. If floating plants or lettuce are placed on the surface before spawning, the eggs will adhere to them. The parent fish should be removed following spawning, as they may eat their own young.
Gender: Can not be determined by external features.
