If you buy a group of these as youngsters they will usually live together quite peacefully for life. Other suitable tankmates include danios, rasboras, smaller barbs and loaches. It will also do well with other peaceful anabantoids.
Feeding – Undemanding. It will accept the vast majority of foods offered, but is particularly fond of small live and frozen varieties such as bloodworm, daphnia etc.
