They will be happiest in a species tank. Keep a fairly large number, ten or more, in the tank and provide plenty of hiding places such as stones tubes and caves. Plants will be limited to salt tolerant varieties and probably the best choice will be the die hard Java fern, plastic may be a better choice. The water should have a small amount of marine mix to increase the salinity

They will choose a secluded space such as behind a filter or within a cave to deposit and hatch the eggs. The male fish will take responsibility for the eggs until the fry emerge a few days later.
