They are very "oscarlike" in temperament. They will eat most anything that fits in their mouth so be careful when choosing tankmates. Also they get very large (up to 30cm) so I would not keep one in less than a 75 gallon tank (100-150 preferably but I am a softy when It comes to big fish, they need their room).
