That fish is simply awesome. Where did you get it if I may ask? Did you order it or purchase at a LFS?

MrMarc, these fish are available from time to time in fish stores, although they aren't common. They like to live in groups and prefer clean, fast moving water. Keep them in a long tank (something like a 20 long at least) and try to get a lot of water flow from one end to the other via filters and/or powerheads. They also like to have lots of rocks and driftwood for cover.
