  3. Social Behavior: These fish are social and thrive in groups of 5 or more. Keeping them in groups helps reduce stress and encourages natural behaviors.
  4. Tank Mates: Ideal tank mates include other peaceful community fish such as tetras, guppies, and other small catfish. Avoid keeping them with large, aggressive species.
  5. Substrate and Decor: Use a soft substrate to prevent damage to their barbels. Provide plenty of hiding spots with plants, caves, and driftwood. They enjoy exploring their environment.
  6. Breeding: Breeding can be achieved in a well-maintained tank. Condition breeding pairs with high-quality food and provide a spawning mop or fine-leaved plants for egg deposition. Remove adults after spawning to prevent them from eating the eggs.
