Males reach up to 4 in. while the females are slightly smaller. Damsels, Dwarf Angelfish or aggressive fish can prove problematic with this shy, unassertive fish. Tank size is a minimum of 45 gal. It is a slow and methodical swimmer and likes to hide in sea grass or other plants. Feed a well-balanced diet of meaty foods.
