Origin

Sexing

Males are smaller than females and are more brightly coloured. The males have iridescent scales along their flanks and a black/yellow edge on their caudal fin. They also possess a andropodium.

Tank compatibility

Can be particularly feisty and even aggressive, especially the males. Should either be kept in groups in a species tank, more females than males, or with similar sized robust fish. Should not be kept with anything shy or long-finned.
