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.
