Where in the world are they from?
Found in southern guinea and sierra leone.

What is the ideal number to keep together?
Ideally kept in groups of 8-10 or more to try reduce shy tendencies.

What water conditions do they require?
Clean mature tanks are best suited with soft water pH ranging from 4.0 to 7.0. Temperatures ranging from 20 to 26 degrees.

Micropredators by nature, but will happily grow to accept crushed flakes and small foods such as cyclops, brineshrimp etc.

Great care should be taken when choosing tank mates due to their small size. Even large tetra can be too boisterous.
