A very social fish, it is best to keep them in groups of three or more.
Numerous shelters should be provided which gives them greater security and generally makes them bolder.
They are an active loach and can be seen hovering around the upper levels.
This species is very variable in pattern and can change quite dramatically as it grows.
Generally, the dark areas gradually increase in size as the fish matures.
