Comments: A great fish for the community aquarium. It is tiny so can go in smaller aquarium but should never be kept in less than a group of 4. Otherwise, they are a great fish to look at. Especially there shoaling behavior. Thier bodies shine brightly when exposed to light which has helped make these beautiful and easy-to-care-for fish become a favorite in the fish-keeping hobby.
