Diet & Nutrition: Will eat flake, frozen, and live foods. Serving a good variety of live and flake foods will help ensure optimum health.

This is a timid fish who will not fight for it's dinner, even if very hungry.

Breeding & Spawning: Egg layer that builds a bubble nest. Should be provided a separate breeding tank, as other fish will eat eggs and small babies (fry). Use dark gravel and provide plenty of floating plants for building the bubble nest.
