I was reading about them and found out that they are jumpers and eat frozen worms or live ones. Also found out that they like warm water 78 - 82 degrees and it said they are peaceful. But also that they prefer to have more of their own kind with them. 6 or so. Oh, and they emit an electrical pulse from their tale when threatened. Hope that helps.
