Very easy to breed; however, care should be taken to limited the number of males in the same tank - fighting can often break-out if the number of males supercedes that of females. Feeding is very easy and newly born fish are capable of surviving without any special needs as long as there is good foliage in the tank. These fish can last up to three years with good luck and good management. Very compatible with tetra fish. Females can grow fairly large.
