Difficult. To help replicate their native environment, choose a soft sand or small, rounded gravel substrate, plant heavily around the aquarium margins and leave a large, central area of open swimming space. Needs very clean, highly-oxygenated, well-filtered water. A powerhead may be used to simulate a riverine current.
Fairs best in a species-only aquarium, but adapts to a lightly populated community aquarium as with similarly-sized, peaceful tankmates.
Experienced fish-keepers only.
The aquarium should have a tight-fitting cover as this fish may jump.
