This species loves to be in large groups, this is how they are found in the lake. In the home aquarium they do best in groups of three or more. We have kept them singly, but they tend to be very shy when kept this way.
One of the reasons these catfish get along so well with cichlids is their unique breeding behavior. Part of this odd behavior is using cichlids as the foster parents for their fry.
