I had one of these until it outgrew my first little tank. It was beautiful, had gorgeous markings and was happy to welcome new fish to the tank, although theywere only guppies. It ate mainly cucumber, as it didn't seem to like the plec tablets I gave him. Bloodworm were also consumed, albeit reluctantly.
