It is not recommended to insert into community aquariums or tanks with other Tetraodontids, also considering the demand for space to live, it is advisable not to insert with species that have slow motion or long caudal fins (they always bite them).Feed: Omnivorousbut above all feeding on alive food such as snails or shellfish, also accepts frozen food.Diffusion: South East Asia. India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia.Swimming level: Medium-low partDifficulty: Average Reproduction: It can be reproduced in captivity, parents caring for parental care like Cichlids. The female lays eggs on a flat surface, and is protected from the male until they are hatched. The beetles survive for the first few weeks thanks to the yolk sac that gives them nourishment, but after this time we need to feed the little ones with Rotiferi and then nauplius of artemia salina, just hatched.Extinguish risk: Not at risk of extinction.
