I have got one individual of this fish, probably Male which came along with my 11 Boesmanis - as a result of mistaken packing. It is a charming fish and acts as a centerpiece because it is the odd man out. It is very peaceful and beautiful and has much to recommend it but can prey on small fish like Neon tetras, which I discovered the hard way.
