Environment Specifics

Found in shallow fast-flowing streams in Myanmar, these are very shady spots in forested areas, but not much vegetation in the streams themselves. Tanks should replicate this with gravel or large rock substrate, dimly lit and a good current with high oxygenation combined with plenty of hiding places.
