✦Plants and Decorations: Provide plenty of plants, driftwood, and caves for the fish to hide and explore. This will also create a sense of security.

✦Offer a mix of dry and live/frozen foods to ensure a 
balanced diet and enhance their natural colors.

Care and Maintenance:

✦Water Parameters: Regularly monitor and maintain proper water conditions, including temperature, pH, and hardness levels.
✦Water Changes: Perform regular partial water changes (10-20%) every 1-2 weeks to remove accumulated toxins and maintain water quality.
✦Filtration: Use a suitable filtration system to keep the water clean and free from harmful substances.
✦Monitoring: Observe the fish for any signs of illness or distress. If any issues arise, promptly address them to ensure their well-being.
✦Compatibility: Keep them in groups of at least six individuals to mimic their natural schooling behavior, promoting their overall health and reducing stress.
