I LOVE these little guys so much! Friendly, comical, beautiful, and they eat algae off even delicate leaves without damage.
I think I read that if they are kept in small numbers, they can be aggressive. I have seven, they love to swim in the current, and forage through the plants. So cute!

i have one of these in my tank it would bother the heck out of my silver dolla and angle fish but i put a little mirror in the tank and it totally has been distracted since. it’s the only fish in the tank that actually gets a kick out of looking at itself. beautiful, hearty fish though, most active in the tank and semi aggressive. with a mirror in the tank i would recommend, without mirror beware, these fish can be kind of detrimental to other fish, at least the one i have is without some sort of entertainment. i had a leopard barb but it one day disappeared i thin the dinosaur bachir ate it.. the odessa barb bothered the leopard barb too.
