General Body Form:
Requires well-oxygenated, well-filtered water with a current in order to thrive. The water should be very well filtered and the aquarium floor needs to be lightly cleaned in between water changes to reduce stress and ensure the health of the fish. Brochis multiradiatus' are aerial respirators and will occasionally nip up to the surface for quick breaths of air. These energetic fish prefer a longer tank that is at least 18 inches deep and reproduces a riverine environment. Soft, sandy substrate protects tender barbels and the tank should be heavily planted with lots of driftwood and rocky spaces for hiding. Occasionally they like to uproot plants. Using plant pots or weighing the plants down should keep them in place. Ideal community fish. Keeping them in schools of 3 to 6 or more reduces stress and keeps them healthy and boisterous. 1 male to 2 females is the suggested ratio. Angelfish, Barbs, Danios, Discus, Dwarf Cichlids, Gouramis, Guppies, Loaches, Mollies, Platies, Plecos, Rainbowfish, Rasboras, Swordtails, Tetras and other scavengers are peaceful companions.
