Comments: This is a great, peaceful community fish. It is very active and needs to be kept in groups of 4 or more, otherwise they can become lazy. They are a delight to have in any aquarium because of thier playfullness and the fact that they help keep the gravel clean by picking the bits of food between the gravel.
