Requiring pristine water quality and generally connoted as a poor competitor for a community aquarium, the Bolivian Ramizeri is distinct and has its own beauty that will stand out in an aquarium notwithstanding the impression that it gives and not to say that it must be maintained alone. Groups of peaceful, open water-dwelling characids or similar are particularly recommended tankmates since the presence of small schooling or shoaling fishes appear to be considered an indicator that there is no immediate threat in the vicinity and therefore can help reduce shyness.
Benthophagous by nature, this species normally takes mouthfuls of substrate which are sifted for edible items with the remaining material expelled via the gill openings and mouth, although they will also browse solid surfaces and snatch items directly from the water column. In the aquarium they should be offered a variety of live and frozen fare such as bloodworm, Artemia, Daphnia, grindal worm, etc. supplemented by good quality, sinking dried foods of a suitably small size. Wild fish may initially refuse the latter but normally learn to accept them over time.
