Temperament
They can be territorial at times and will fight with their mouths. We've found that it is good to get a pair so that when they are feeling aggressive they will chase each other around instead of the other tropical fish.

Breeding / Reproduction

Very difficult to breed because they require large tanks.

Tank Size

50 gallon or larger.

Compatible Tank Mates

Because of its potential adult size and because it can become territorial, use caution when selecting tank mates, these are some fish that could potentially be kept with this fish:
Dwarf Gourami, Corydoras, Pleco, Serpae Tetra, Silver Dollar, Angelfish, Bala Shark, Cherry Barbs, Red Tail Shark, Rosy Barb, Tiger Barb, White Clouds, Zebra Danio, Clown Loach, Guppy, Platy, Swordtail

Will take many types of foods, including flakes, pellets, freeze dried and especially live foods.
