Ease of care
Easy. They are perfect for beginners as they are hardy and live well in a wider range of freshwater parameters. They need sandy substrate.
Sinking pellets or Catfish granules are best for them however they can also be given live or frozen food, like Daphnia, as a treat.
Peaceful, community aquarium. They live well with tank mates such as Tetras, Rasbora, Livebearers, etc. They like a planted aquarium with hiding places.
Breeding/ Sex
Intermediate. They lay eggs so you should have them in their own aquarium just in case the other fish eat the eggs. You should have more females to males for the best results. Females grow larger and are rounder bodied.
Life Span
They can live to anything from 2-3 years in perfect conditions.
