I found these lovely fish excellent to keep, but, when I thought one had died because it had disappeared, I found it stuck behind my filter 4 days after it went missing. I unstuck the filter and it swam free, despite having torn and bleeding fins, and a huge gash on its belly, it is now swimming hardy, and is now recovering nicely with no treatment. How amazing!

I caught 6 of these fishes when my school took us to a trip to Panchghag. It is located near Ranchi in India. When I brought them and put them in my tank they filled life in my tank. I still have 2 left. I caught them when I was in 5th grade and presently I'm in 10th grade. So the 2 of them alive are 5 years old in my tank. Others died after spending 1 year in my 75 liter tank.
