This is an awesome fish for any larger or aggressive set-up. They do well in larger groups of at least 8, but will fight amongst themselves in any smaller sized group. They do best as the only top dwellers in a tank, as they are notoriously skittish, and will jump if spooked so a tight fitting lid is recommended. They need lots of swimming space, so a large tank at least 75 gallons or larger is highly recommended, but the bigger the footprint, the better. They prefer to feed on insects, and little crustaceans, so a meaty diet is highly recommended.
