The Spotted Headstander is a popular fish for fishkeepers with an eye for the unusual. In the case of headstanders, the fish's habit of positioning itself almost vertically with the head down provides that extra interest. The fish is a little timid and must be kept in groups with other peaceful fishes. Ideally, the aquarium should have well filtered water and plenty of shaded hiding spots. The Spotted Headstander is a very peaceful fish, although it may nibble at delicate plants. Soft, acidic water is preferred.
