Arrangement and parameters of the aquarium: Catfish catfish and can comfortably exist only in a group of 8 or more individuals. For such a number of fish, an aquarium of size 45x30x30 cm 40-50 liters is enough. Soil like all Corey need soft to prevent damage to the gentle antennae needed to find food.

The presence of a large number of plants allows corridors to feel safe, but they need to be planted so that there is free space at the bottom, where Rabawti spend all their time. Shelters in the form of grottoes, caves, coconut shells, earthen pots, shards and snags are needed.

It is necessary to provide the fish access to the surface of the water, where they periodically rise to take a sip of air.

In the prespawning period, the producers should eat a varied diet, and when the female has a belly to start, they should begin to replace about 50-70% of water daily, which stimulates spawning. Ready-to-spawn males show increased activity in pursuit of the female.

It is necessary to place producers in the spawning farm in the evening in proportion to one female 3-5 males. Usually fish spawn in the morning in the most well-lit place, often on the side windows.

At one time, the female lays 2-4 eggs, and in total is able to lay up to 120 small eggs, whose diameter does not exceed 2 mm.
