Feeding A smaller carnivore, feed meaty or flake based tablets and pellets, frozen bloodworm or brineshrimp and chopped molluscs.
Furniture The Rio Xingú is full of rocks of many sizes with some fine sand between them. The secretive species should have plenty rocks to scuttle under, bogwood and plants are not required, the latter are however left entirely unmolested.
Compatibility Territorial but not overly so, a good l-number for a general community tank of small to medium size but not a great choice for a group of l-numbers.
Suggested Tankmates Does well with most fish
Breeding Unreported.
Breeding Reports There is no breeding report.
