Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- Chaca chaca feed by camouflaging themselves in the substrate, as their dark colour makes them look similar to a leaf. Chaca lie in wait of a passing fish, and then engulf their prey whole. Fishes around half of the length of the Chaca can easily be swallowed, therefore any tank mates need to be very carefully considered, if any are chosen at all.
