General Body Form
A somewhat peaceful species that benefits from a large aquaria. Its
tank-mates should be of the same size and temperament, no long finned
slower moving fish such as Angels as they are notoriously sneaky about
fin-nipping. The tank bottom should be gravel covered with plants
and decorations. Feeding is not a problem as they take prepared staple
food along with supplements of live and frozen food.
Widespread throughout South America, Usually occurs in rocky areas
of rapidly flowing waters.
No reports of successful breeding in captivity have been reported
