Comments: Lovely little fish! Their noses glow brightly when they are healthy and happy. Best kept with AT LEAST 3 others of their own kind or you will have unhappy rummies. They need some room as they like to race around the tank in a school. Will eat flake but love frozen and live food like bloodworms or brine shrimp.
