Care: Moderate. This diminutive fish does best with a soft, sandy substrate planted with taller plants (with floating plants to dapple the light.)

Water and substrate should be fastidiously clean and water should be high in dissolved oxygen to help replicate a riverine environment.

C. bondi does best as part of a shoal of at least 6, kept in a ratio of 1 male to 1 female.
Suitability: Some experience required.
Note: C. bondi has an estimated lifespan of 3 5 years.
