The Black-banded Rainbowfish is a peaceful species that will do fine in a community aquarium with other small and peaceful fishes. It can also be kept in species aquariums. The water should ideally be really soft since this is what the fish is used to from the wild. Strive to keep the total hardness below 50 ppm (parts per million). Acidic water is recommended, but the Black-banded Rainbowfish is known to adapt it self to slightly alkaline conditions as long as the change is slow and gradual. Never let the pH-value rise above 7.5. Keep the water temperature in the 23-27 degrees C (73-81 degrees F) range.
