Comments: This fish is a bottom feeder and scavenger. It is very sensitive to nitrates and nitrites in the water. The pH is not very important, but around neutral is best. Provide plenty of hiding places as this fish is shy. Be sure it gets its share of food. Pellets and bottom sinking foods are the best. Mine eats some algae but do not buy this fish to clean up algae. It can also be kept in a cool water aquarium.
