In Aquariums

The fish will grow in length up to 4 centimetres (1.6 inches). It lives in a tropical climate in water with a 5.5–6.8 pH, a water hardness of 12 dGH, and a temperature range of 22 to 25 °C (72 to 77 °F). It feeds on worms, benthic crustaceans, insects, and plant matter. It lays eggs in dense vegetation and adults do not guard the eggs.

It is not very popular in the aquarium trade, probably because it is difficult to distinguish from other related species.
