Think I just found a new oddball for my aquarium! Is this a schooling species or can one live singly?
I haven't been able to find a lot of info on that to be honest but from the info I've gathered, taking care of them, and fish similar to them id say the don't mind being near each other nor shoaling but I wouldn't say they school, I've had ones separated from others that abandon tank into the next tank over and they do just as well. If I were buying them though to bring home and I had the room I'd probably like to have 3 together though, super neat fish in my opinion!!
