  • Avoid Aggressive Species: To preserve their delicate nature, avoid housing them with aggressive or fin-nipping fish.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a soft substrate like sand to mimic their natural habitat and prevent injury to their sensitive barbels. Decorate the tank with driftwood, rocks, and tall plants to offer hiding spots and create a serene environment.
