Be careful when selecting this fish. It comes from fast-moving streams and
is not tolerant of low-oxygen conditions. I also have never been able to
keep it above 80F. which may the point at which even a well-areated tank can
not hold sufficient O2 for the fish's needs.
But they are neat, and can even be spawned with lttle attention or effort.
