    Additional Information & Description

    These are excellent fish and very personable and fun to watch. The thing i find most enjoyable about these fish is the fact that they watch you as well. These fish are pigs when it comes to eating and will eat any food you put into the tank. the only reason i put moderate for aggressiveness is because if another fish gets too close it will open its mouth and push away the other fish. it does not bite but only uses its mouth as a sort of bulldozer. these fish dig holes in the sand for them to live in. Keep a TIGHT lid as these fish are very prone to jumping the first couple weeks in a new tank setting. not to say that the aquarium doesnt need a lid after a couple weeks as it certainly still does.
