This semi-aggressive fish is an excellent addition to any home aquarium, especially those 20 gallons or larger. With the right environment and appropriate companions, it can live a long and healthy life. Additionally, this fish requires plenty of hiding places to feel secure and safe in its environment.

To ensure a stress-free environment for all the inhabitants, it is important to provide appropriate companions for the fish that are compatible with its temperament.
