Diet: Omnivorous. High-quality sinking pellets, plants, and freeze-dried or frozen meaty foods will be readily accepted. These fish will eat most types of fish food, but they love live food such as bloodworms and daphnia. They are nocturnal, so they will likely feed at night for the most part.
Social behavior: Peaceful. We recommend not keeping them with many other bottom-dwelling species, as their peaceful nature may lead them to be out-competed for food.
